What Adult Disability Payment is

Adult Disability Payment is extra money to help you if you have a disability or long-term health condition that affects your everyday life.

We refer to these things as your condition.

Adult Disability Payment is made up of 2 parts:

  1. daily living
  2. mobility

You may qualify for one or both parts.

The amount you get depends on how your condition affects your ability to do everyday activities and get around.

It does not matter if you're working or not. Your income and savings are not taken into account.

Daily living part

You may qualify for the daily living part if you need help with:

  • preparing food
  • taking nutrition (eating and drinking)
  • managing therapy or monitoring a health condition
  • washing and bathing
  • managing toilet needs or incontinence
  • dressing and undressing
  • communicating verbally
  • reading and understanding signs, symbols and words
  • engaging socially with other people face to face
  • making budgeting decisions

How much you'll get

If you're awarded the daily living part you’ll get either:

  • £61.85 a week for a standard award
  • £92.40 a week for an enhanced award

If you're terminally ill you'll automatically get the enhanced daily living award.

Mobility part
