Scottish Government Adult Disability Payment – Consultation OPFS Submission
One Parent Families Scotland welcomes the opportunity to respond to this Scottish Government consultation on the draft regulations for the Adult Disability Payment. The Adult Disability Payment is a new Scottish benefit which will replace the UK Personal Independence Payment and be delivered by Social Security Scotland. This form of assistance is provided to disabled people between the ages of 16 and state pension age to mitigate the additional costs of living with a disability or health condition.
The regulatory framework for the Adult Disability Payment gives Scotland the chance to move towards creating a system that delivers the social security required to support people with the extra costs associated with a disability or health condition, enough for people to participate in society and to live as autonomously as possible.
