People in Scotland can no longer make a new claim for Personal Independence Payment (PIP) as it has been replaced by Adult Disability Payment (ADP), a similar but devolved benefit only available to people living north of the border.

The new benefit is for adults over 16 and under State Pension age living with a disability, long-term illness or a physical or mental health condition.

Social Security Scotland will deliver the benefit with mostly the same eligibility criteria and payment rates currently being administered by DWP for PIP.
