The department’s overarching goal is to ensure that those entitled to Personal Independence Payment receive it. Accordingly there are no targets or guidance linked to rejections. Every benefit claim and appeal is considered on its merits, and decisions are made based on the available evidence and the legislation according to which such decisions are made.
