Personal Independence Payment
Disability Living Allowance is a tax-free benefit for disabled people who need help with mobility or care costs.
You can only make a new claim for DLA if you are under 16.
If you’re aged 16 to 64 and not currently receiving Disability Living Allowance, you may be able to claim Personal Independence Payment instead.
The amount you get depends on how your condition affects you, not the condition itself.
You will be assessed by a health professional and your rate with be regularly reviewed.
