  • Adult Disability Payment launch dates announced  

    Created: 09/01/2022

    The Scottish Government’s next benefit, Adult Disability Payment, will open for new applications in pilot areas from 21 March 2022.

    Adults of working age with a disability or health condition, who are not already in receipt of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or Personal Independence Payment (PIP), and living in Dundee City, Perth and Kinross and the Western Isles local authority areas will be the first to be able to apply from this date.
    Further local authority areas will be introduced in phases until Adult Disability Payment rolls out nationwide from August 2022.  Individuals with ongoing awards of Personal Independence Payment or Disability Living Allowance do not need to apply for Adult Disability Payment. Their awards will be transferred automatically to the new Scottish system from August 2022, with no break in entitlement or payment.
