If you or someone close to you are applying for or receiving benefits due to ill health or a disability, there are some changes to be aware of.
Please see the link below.
Disability Living Allowance (DLA) is a tax-free benefit for disabled people who need help with mobility or care costs. DLA is ending for people who were born after 8 April 1948 and are 16 or over. You can now only make a new claim for DLA if you’re under 16.
Personal Independence Payment (PIP) was introduced in April 2013. PIP helps with some of the extra costs caused by long-term ill health or a disability.
