Disability Allowance Application


Disability Living Allowance (DLA) is being replaced by Personal Independence Payment (PIP) for disabled people.

You can only apply for DLA if you are under 16.  You can apply for:

  • PIP if you’re aged 16 or over and have not reached State Pension age
  • Attendance Allowance it you’re State Pension age or older and do not get DLA

If you already get DLA, your claim might end. You’ll get a letter telling you when this will happen and how you can apply for PIP.
