Adult Disability Payment
The new Adult Disability Payment has opened for applications for people living in Glasgow since 29th of August 2022
This is the twelfth benefit to be introduced by the Scottish Government, with seven of these benefits being brand new forms of support that are not available elsewhere in the UK.
Adult Disability Payment will be administered through Social Security Scotland and will replace Personal Independence Payment, which is currently delivered by the Department for Work and Pensions.
People with ongoing awards of Personal Independence Payment and Disability Living Allowance do not need to make an application for Adult Disability Payment. Their awards will transfer to the Scottish social security system automatically
Like Personal Independence Payment, Adult Disability Payment is additional money to help you if you have a disability or long-term health condition that affects your day-to-day life.
Adult Disability Payment is also split into two parts, like Personal Independence Payment. They are split into Mobility and Daily living and you can be awarded either one or both. Both components have two rates (standard and enhanced)
