Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for adults

This is a benefit for people who have mobility problems or need personal care. However, it has been replaced by other benefits for disabled people.

For people born on or before 8 April 1948, you will continue to receive DLA for as long as you qualify for it. For eligible people born after 8 April 1948, you will be told when your claim ends and how you can apply for Personal Independence Payments (PIP).

If you currently receive Disability Living Allowance and you feel that your care or mobility have changed, then you may wish to take advice before asking for a review of your needs. You can contact our Macmillan Welfare Rights Advisers for more information or advice on this.
