Independent Review of Adult Disability Payment: consultation

The Chair of the Independent Review of Adult Disability Payment is consulting on people's views about the first year of delivery. This will be used to help inform recommendations to ensure that Adult Disability Payment meets the needs of disabled people.

Section 11 – Changes in people’s circumstances

People (or people who act on their behalf, called representatives) must inform Social Security Scotland about changes, such as:

  • their banking or contact details
  • their condition
  • the level of help and care needs
  • the support they need with their mobility.

People (or their representatives) must tell Social Security Scotland about changes within four weeks.

How reporting a change of circumstances works with PIP

For context, for people in Scotland and elsewhere in the UK still receiving PIP, a change of circumstances must be reported over the telephone[11].

The following question asks about reporting a change of circumstances for Adult Disability Payment.

For this question, we are specifically interested in changes that affect a person’s daily living needs. This might mean that the amount of Adult Disability Payment they get might change.
