DLA

Disability Living Allowance

New claims
You can only make a new claim for Disability Living Allowance (DLA) if you’re claiming for a child under 16 – this is known as DLA for children. You may be able to reclaim DLA.

Anyone over 16 must apply for Personal Independence Payment (PIP) instead of DLA.

Existing claims
PIP is gradually replacing DLA for people aged 16 to 64, even for those with an indefinite or lifetime DLA award.

You can continue to get DLA if you were born on or before 8 April 1948 and you’re eligible. If you were born after that, use the PIP checker to find out if and when you’re affected by PIP.
