  • Adult Disability Payment consultation

    Created: 01/02/2023

    People are being encouraged to share their views on how a Scottish Government disability benefit supports their mobility needs.

    The consultation on eligibility for the Adult Disability Payment mobility element will gather evidence to feed into a wider independent review. Ministers committed to this review to ensure the payment meets people’s needs now and in the future.

    The mobility element, one of two components to the payment, supports people who have difficulties moving around or planning and following journeys.

    The consultation will run for 12 weeks and will close on 25 April.


    Adult Disability Payment, delivered by Social Security Scotland, was launched in August 2022 to replace the UK Government’s Personal Independence Payment. It provides financial support to people aged between 16 and state pension age who are disabled, have a long-term health condition or a terminal illness. There are two parts: the mobility element, and a daily living element for people who experience difficulties with day-to-day activities such as preparing a meal or bathing.
