Disability Living Allowance

Disability Living Allowance (DLA) used to be the benefit you could claim if you had difficulties getting around or needed help with everyday tasks.

If you're making a new claim, you live anywhere in the UK and you're also aged between 16 and 64, you'll need to apply for PIP rather than DLA.

If you want to claim for a child under 16 years old, you can still claim DLA - you may find the Disability Rights UK factsheet helpful.

The information on this page aims to answer some of the questions that people who currently receive DLA may have.
