Disability Living Allowance

Disability Living Allowance is a tax free benefit for people under 65 years old, who need help with personal care, with getting around, or both.

DLA is ending for people who were born after 8 April 1948 and are 16 years old or over. You'll continue to get DLA until the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) writes to tell you when it will end and invites you to apply for Personal Independence Payment (PIP).
