Question: What benefits can an amputee claim?

If the amputation renders a person unable to work, the amputee might be eligible for Social Security disability benefits -- under certain circumstances. The fact that you have had a body extremity amputated does not automatically qualify you for disability benefits.

Can amputees claim PIP?

A DWP spokesperson said: “PIP is awarded based on someones needs arising from a disability or health condition and those needs can change over time with rehabilitation or, in the case of amputees, with the use of prosthetics.

Can you get disability one leg?

For example, those who have had both hands amputated, the amputation of one leg up to the hip, or the amputation of both legs may automatically qualify for disability benefits. For those whose amputations are not listed in the Blue Book, you are not disqualified from receiving benefits.
