Motability has now extended the level of help they give when people lose their motability cars either on transfer from Disability Living Allowance to Personal Independence Payment (PIP) or when their PIP award gets renewed. The length of time that they will continue to let you keep the car has increased from 3 weeks to 8 weeks. People whose motability agreements started before the end of 2013 can opt for either a lump sum of up to £2000 or to keep their motability cars for up to 26 weeks while they challenge the decisions to reduce their awards.
For the first time people who entered notability agreements after the start of 2014 are now able to get a payment of £250 if they return the vehicle to the dealer within 8 weeks of the end of their last DLA payment. We have updated the information on the Have you failed a Personal Independence Payment medical page.
