If you have an upcoming renewal of your Disability Allowance for Children

If you have an upcoming renewal of Disability Living Allowance for Children you should continue to follow the Department for Work and Pension’s process. 
When your benefit has transferred to Social Security Scotland and you're receiving Child Disability Payment, you’ll go through a review instead of a renewal.  
Social Security Scotland will:

  • look at the information they already have for you from the Department for Work and Pensions
  • let you know if there is anything else they need to ask 
  • review any changes you tell them about 

Find out more about the review process with Social Security Scotland.


There are no award reviews for clients aged 16 when they transfer to Child Disability Payment unless their circumstances change. Once a client turns 16 they can apply for Personal Independence Payment.
