Information about Upcoming Adult Disability Payment

Adult Disability Payment replaces Personal Independence Payment (PIP) for the people of Scotland this year.

It will be introduced in pilot stages in different local authorities, starting from 21 March.

People will be able to apply if they:

are between 16 years old and state pension age

need help with the extra costs of being disabled or having a long term health condition

do not already get PIP or DLA

People who get PIP will have their award automatically transferred to Adult Disability Payment. This process will start from summer 2022.
