You have a disability or long-term health condition that affects your everyday life.
It replaces Disability Living Allowance (DLA) and Personal Independence Payment (PIP) for adults who live in Scotland. You do not need to apply for Adult Disability Payment if you already get Personal Independence Payment (PIP) or Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for adults from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). Social Security Scotland will move your benefit to Adult Disability Payment without you having to do anything.
