New figures published by Social Security Scotland show that there are now 192,575 people in receipt of Adult Disability Payment (ADP).

This includes 83,190 new applicants and 109,385 existing Personal Independence Payment (PIP) claimants who have now transferred from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to the devolved benefits system.

The statistics also show that by January 31, 2024, 11,880 redeterminations had been completed and of these, some 54 per cent were allowed or partially allowed, 40 per cent were disallowed and 5 per cent were invalid.

There were also 205 redeterminations (2%) which went to appeal after exceeding the 56 day deadline. Social Security Scotland said it wants to make the redetermination process as easy as possible for claimants who wish to challenge their award decision.
