DLA rates for children
Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for children is a tax-free benefit made up of 2 components (parts). The child might qualify for one or both components.
|Care component||Weekly rate|
|Mobility component||Weekly rate|
How DLA for children is paid
DLA is usually paid every 4 weeks on a Tuesday.
If your payment date is on a bank holiday, you will usually be paid before the bank holiday. After that you’ll continue to get paid as normal.
All benefits, pensions and allowances are paid into your bank, building society or credit union account.
You might qualify for Carer’s Allowance if you spend at least 35 hours a week caring for a child who gets the middle or highest care rate of DLA.
