This one-day course provides an introduction to disability benefits for adult claimants. This includes personal independence payment and attendance allowance, and also the Scottish replacements to these benefits, scheduled to start being introduced from 2021. These benefits are vitally important for people with disabilities and this course will give you an understanding of the main rules and help you deal with common problems.
The course covers:
• Who is entitled to personal independence payment (PIP)
• Who is entitled to attendance allowance (AA)
• How to claim
• The transfer of PIP and AA to Social Security Scotland
The course is aimed at advisers with little or no knowledge of these benefits.
