Child Disability Payment will open for applications across Scotland from 22 November 2021.
You do not need to apply if your child already gets Disability Living Allowance for children.
From mid October children aged 16 or over who get Disability Living Allowance for children will have their award transferred to Social Security Scotland in phases. Clients aged up to 15-years-old will have their award transferred from spring 2022.
Payments will continue to be made at the same rates and on the same payment cycle.
