MPs in Westminster Hall held a debate on preparation for personal independence payments (PIP) on 13 November 2012.
The debate was led by the Labour MP for Glasgow North West, John Robertson.
PIP is due to replace Disability Living Allowance (DLA), as part of the coalition's reforms of the welfare system in the UK.
The government has said money is too often wasted on overpayments where people's conditions have changed.
The DLA is divided into two components - care (between £20.55 and £77.45 a week) and mobility (between £20.55 and £54.05 a week). Claimants may qualify for one or both components.
Exact details of how the PIP will be allocated have not yet been revealed and those wishing to claim it will have to go through a reassessment of their needs.
