MP calls for reform of benefits system for people with Motor Neurone Disease – South Wales Argus

Islwyn MP Chris Evans.

 
ISLWYN MP Chris Evans has called on the UK Government to reform the benefits system for people with Motor Neurone Disease (MND).

MND is a rare disease which occurs when cells in the brain, nerves and spinal cord stop working. There is no known cure, and it affects up to 5,000 people in the UK.

Under the current system, if claimants want their applications for Personal Independence Payment (PIP) to be fast-tracked under the Special Rules for Terminal Illness procedure then they have to prove that they have six months or less to live.
