Disability Living Allowance (DLA) is paid at different rates depending on how your disability affects you.

Rate Care component Mobility component
Higher rate £82.30 a week £57.45 a week
Middle rate £55.10 a week N/A
Lower rate £21.80 a week £21.80 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.
