Reading now: 664

Adult Disability Payment is a new health benefit which is replacing Personal Independence Payment (PIP) for people living in Scotland.

The devolved benefit will provide financial support to people aged between 16 and State Pension age, who are disabled, have a long-term health condition or have a terminal illness.

People already receiving PIP and Disability Living Allowance (DLA) from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) do not need to apply for Adult Disability Payment.

Some 320,000 existing awards will transfer automatically from the DWP to Social Security Scotland in stages and are expected to be completed by the end of 2025.
