Child disability payment (Scotland), 1 – 2 November 2022 ONLINE
Child disability payment (CDP) is a new Scottish benefit that helps meet the additional needs of disabled children. It replaces disability living allowance (DLA) for children living in Scotland.
This course gives a practical insight into the main CDP rules. It will equip you with the skills to demonstrate how a child meets the qualifying criteria and to make effective claims. The course also considers what to do if the client is not happy with the outcome of a claim.
The course covers:
- Who is entitled to CDP and how to claim
- The different components of CDP
- How CDP for a child can increase benefits for the family
- Some special rules
- An overview of the process for challenging decisions
This ‘one-day equivalent’ standard level course is aimed at advisers with little or no knowledge of CDP.
The course will be delivered online via Zoom from 10am to 1pm each day with a half hour break from 11.15 – 11.45.
It is a practical course, delivered using a combination of trainer presentation, exercises and group discussion. Participants will need a Wi-Fi connection and a suitable device to access the internet. It is not recommended to join via a mobile phone. Participants will receive an email a few days before the start of the course, with a link to the event hosted on our AskCPAG elearning platform.
