About review decisions

Understanding a review decision

A new decision following a review is called a determination.

When Social Security Scotland writes to confirm any change to the Child Disability Payment of the child or young person you look after, they'll let you know:

If the award will stop following a review, Social Security Scotland will write to tell you why.

How review decisions affect other benefits you get

If the child's award changes following a review, this could affect other related benefits that you get.

If you get benefits from any of these organisations, you should tell them about changes to your Child Disability Payment:

  • your local council 
  • HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC)
  • Department for Work and Pensions (DWP)
  • Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA)
