Consultation on Adult Disability Payment (ADP) Regulations
The Scottish Government is seeking views on the draft regulations for Adult Disability Payment. Adult Disability Payment is a new Scottish benefit which will replace Personal Independence Payment and be delivered by Social Security Scotland. This form of assistance is provided to disabled individuals between the ages of 16 and state pension age to mitigate the additional costs of living with a disability or health condition.
The purpose of this consultation is to gather views on the policy and draft regulations and identify any gaps, issues or unintended consequences. The Scottish Government is also asking questions on some specific points about the effects of these regulations. The government would like to gather views from a range of organisations and individuals to ensure it has identified the best solutions. In addition to asking questions about the draft regulations, the government is also asking for views on the potential impacts of Adult Disability Payment on different groups and also on businesses.
