Why is the change happening?

The Government says:

  • No change has been made to Disability Living Allowance since it was introduced.
  • It is complicated to administer.
  • It is hard to keep track of claimants.


Benefit changes concerns

We're in the middle of big changes to the benefits' system and on Monday a trial will begin, phasing out the Disability Living Allowance and replacing it with a Personal Independence Payment.
