Disability Living Allowance (DLA) is paid at different rates depending on how your disability affects you.
|Rate||Care component||Mobility component|
|Higher rate||£81.30 a week||£56.75 a week|
|Middle rate||£54.45 a week||N/A|
|Lower rate||£21.55 a week||£21.55 a week|
DLA has 2 parts called ‘components’:
- care component - if you need supervision or help looking after yourself
- mobility component - if you can’t or find it very hard to walk
You could get a combination of both, or just one of the components.
