Adult disability payment (ADP) is a new Scottish benefit aimed at supporting working-age adults who have extra care needs or mobility difficulties because of a disability. It replaces personal independence payment in Scotland. Getting an award of ADP can significantly increase income and so it is a crucial benefit for advisers and others to know about. This introductory level course will give you an understanding of the main rules and help you to identify people who may be entitled.
The course covers:
This course is aimed at those with little or no experience of ADP or personal independence payment. More experienced advisers should book on Transferring to Scottish disability benefits.
