Parent with ME - need help with taxes/benefits?

    Hi all, hope you're doing ok! :) My mum's getting into her 40s and has had a fairly sudden development of ME and has had to stop working because of it. She's been mentioning PIP and I've been looking into it and it sounds like our next step. I'm starting to figure out what I need to get her to do to apply but had a, hopefully, super simple question about how tax works on this. If she's already got to the end of her personal allowance will the PIP payments be taxable as income? I've tried to work it out with this tax calculator but I don't think I'm on the right train of thought so was hoping someone here could confirm.

    Also - are there some good online communities/places she can go for general living with ME support? I think this would really help her because I can't be there all the time.

    Thank you!! :)
