Child Disability Payment
Child disability payment is replacing disability living allowance for children living in Scotland.
If your child already gets disability living allowance you cannot claim child disability payment for your child and they will remain on disability living allowance until they are transferred to child disability payment.
Your child will be transferred without having to make a new claim.
Like disability living allowance,child disability payment is a benefit for children who have extra care or supervision needs and/or mobility problems because of a disability or long-term health condition.
This might be a physical or mental disability or health condition.
Child disability payment has two components – the care component and mobility component – and your child can be entitled to one or both of these components.
The care component has three possible levels (lowest, middle and highest) and the mobility component has two possible levels (lower and higher).
