What: DWP begins its lengthy rollout of PIP, which is replacing working-age disability living allowance (DLA).

Why significant: Those being assessed for PIP would in future years experience many of the same problems as those who had been put through the WCA, with allegations of inaccurate and dishonest reports written by assessors working for DWP contractors Atos and Capita.
