WHAT IS PERSONAL INDEPENDENCE PAYMENT (PIP)?
Personal Independence Payment (PIP) helps with some of the extra costs caused by long-term ill-health or a disability if you’re aged 16 to 64. The rate depends on how your condition affects you, not the condition itself
DO I OWN THE CAR AT THE END OF THE LEASE?
No, due to being on the leasing scheme, Motability Operations have ownership of the vehicle. However, you have three options at the end of your agreement:
You can choose to lease another car through Motability
There is a chance you could extend your lease and keep the car longer
Or you can return your car and have your allowance reinstated
WHAT IS AN ADVANCE PAYMENT?
This is an amount payable upfront to your Motability dealer in addition to your weekly mobility allowance. Your mobility allowance may not cover the cost for some larger or more expensive cars. These cars are allocated with an Advance Payment which represents the difference between the amount your allowance covers over the three-year agreement period and the overall cost of the car you choose.
