Hi I’ve recently been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my hood and my thumb. I am currently still working. Was wondering if any of you know if I can claim PIP

    Hello xxchelle74xx and welcome to the Community.

    We are a friendly and supportive group and I hope that will be your experience as well.

    I understand that you have rheumatoid arthritis and that you have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in hand and thumb looking for advice on PIP claim I am sure that others will connect with you to share their support, but in the meantime have a look at the following from our website.

    I personally contacted local council and their welfare rights team who guided me through the process successfully as I was diagnosed with Palindromic Rheumatoid Arthritis in January and was at a loss what to do as pain took over.

    Please keep posting and let us know how you are getting on and I am sure others will connect with you soon.

    With best wishes
