Adult Disability Payment: Consultation on the Mobility Component: Easy Read

The Scottish Government's consultation on the mobility component of Adult Disability Payment gives people the opportunity to give their views on the eligibility criteria. The findings will inform the independent review of Adult Disability Payment commencing later this year.


In 2015 it was decided that disability benefits would be controlled by the Scottish Government instead of the UK Government.

In 2022 we started Adult Disability Payment to replace Personal Independence Payment in Scotland.

This means that disability benefits for adults Social Security Scotland pays people instead of the UK Government.

We have made changes to Adult Disability Payment to make it easier to access after talking to people who have experience of receiving disability benefits.
