Claimants of the government’s disability benefits programme have an “inherent distrust” of the system, an independent review has found.

The second review of Personal Independence Payments said 65% of those who appealed against rejected claims saw the decision overturned by judges.

Personal Independence Payments or PIP is a benefit for those who need help with extra costs associated with long-term illness or disability.
It was brought in to replace the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) in 2013 and pays claimants up to £139.75 per week, depending on their needs.
The review was carried out by Social Security Advisory Committee chairman Paul Gray, who made a number of recommendations to the government in his first review in 2014.
