What happens if I am awarded the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component (ERMC) of Personal Independence Payment (PIP)?
The Motability Scheme works with Personal Independence Payment (PIP) in the same way as it does with Disability Living Allowance (DLA). The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to lease a new car, scooter or powered wheelchair. If you receive one of the following allowances, with at least 12 months remaining, you may be eligible to join the Motability Scheme:
- Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of PIP
- Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance
- War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement
- Armed Forces Independence Payment
