Case Transfer Guide

Social Security Scotland is taking control of some benefits that used to be handled by the Department for Work and Pensions.

Clients who get Disability Living Allowance for children will be the first to have their award transferred. Their award will be replaced by Child Disability Payment. Clients will have their award transferred to the new payment in stages, with the oldest clients having their award transferred first.
