    Disabled people are being urged to find out if they are eligible for Scottish Government disability benefits as part of a new campaign to increase benefit take-up. 

    The nationwide campaign aims to raise awareness about financial support available to help with the extra costs that disabled children and adults may face.

    Child Disability Payment provides financial support to help families and carers with the extra costs of caring for a disabled child or young person or a child or young person with a long-term health condition. Adult Disability Payment is available to   people aged between 16 and state pension age who are disabled, have a long-term health condition or a terminal illness.

    These benefits are administered by Social Security Scotland and replace the Department for Work and Pensions’ Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for Children, DLA and Personal Independence Payment.

    People already getting disability benefits from DWP will see their award transfer automatically and they do not need to apply separately. 

    See more at the Scottish Government website.
