Receiving Adult Disability Payment

If your application is successful, the earliest date that Social Security Scotland can pay you from is when you:

  • submitted the first part of your application, if you applied online
  • phoned Social Security Scotland to start the application process, if you applied by phone and paper form

Adult Disability Payment is normally paid every 4 weeks. This payment will be for the previous 4 week period. It'll be paid into the account you gave in your application.

If you're terminally ill, Adult Disability Payment is paid weekly in advance.
