Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) show that in July there were 2.8 million people across the UK claiming support through Personal Independence Payments (PIP) and accessing a whole range of additional assistance including Council Tax Reductions, benefit top-ups and free or discounted public transport.

Of that total, 292,231 Scots are now receiving financial support between £23.70 and £152.15 every week PIP is paid every four weeks, so that amounts to between £94.80 and £608.60 each month completely tax-free.

The DWP also confirmed that during the period between April and July 2021, it had received 170,000 registrations for new claims, the highest quarterly level of new claim registrations since PIP began in 2013.
