  • if there is any information you have not been able to give, like account details for payment
  • to ask you to take part in a consultation

If you need to send supporting information

You can:

  • upload your documents online
  • send them by post

You should send these within 28 days of submitting your part 2 application.

You cannot send supporting information by email.

Find out more about sending supporting information.

If anything changes while you're waiting for a decision on your application

You need to tell Social Security Scotland if:

  • anything changes that affects your condition or your needs
  • you move house
  • you stay in hospital, residential accommodation or legal detention for 28 days or more
  • you need to update your payment details

If you no longer want to apply

You need to contact Social Security Scotland and ask them to withdraw your application.

You can only do this if Social Security Scotland has not made a decision about your application. 

If you withdraw your application, you will be able to make a later application for Adult Disability Payment.
