New statistics from Social Security Scotland show that at the end of January, some 192,575 people were in receipt of Adult Disability Payment (ADP)and of those, 83,199 were new applicants and 109,385 were existing Personal Independence Payment (PIP) case transfers from the Department for Work Pensions (DWP).

One new piece of data that will be of interest to many is that the average time to process a new claim for ADP has fallen from 83 working days in October 2023 to 59 working days in January 2024.

This means people making a new claim this month could have an award decision before the end of August. A successful new claim for the devolved payment is worth the same amount as its DWP counterpart.

This means people over the age of 16 with a disability, long-term illness or physical or mental health condition could receive between £28.70 and £184.30 each week - paid every four weeks. Daily Living Component Mobility Component Scotland’s welfare system is encouraging people about to make a new claim, or those who have already submitted one, to provide at least one piece of supporting information from an acceptable professional as that could help case managers understand someone’s condition, disability or daily living or mobility needs - and speed up an award decision.
