Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for adults

Overview

You can no longer apply for DLA if you’re 16 or over.

Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is replacing Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for disabled people aged 16 to 64.

If you’re 65 or over and do not get DLA, you can apply for Attendance Allowance instead.

You can still apply for DLA if you’re under 16.

If you already get DLA, your claim might end. You’ll get a letter telling you when this will happen and how you can apply for PIP.
