As the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) are currently making reforms to the welfare system, we thought it would be useful to write a short guide to help you understand how it could affect you.
One key aspect of the reform is to gradually replace the Disability Living Allowance (DLA) with the Personal Independence Payment (PIP) for disabled people aged between 16 and 64.
In the future, to qualify for a Motability car you will need to receive the enhanced rate of the Motability component of the PIP, just as you would have had to under the old DLA scheme.
If you are aged between 16 and 64 you will be invited to apply for PIP even if you have been awarded an ‘indefinite’ or ‘lifetime’ DLA.
Children under the age of 16 will receive DLA as normal until the age of 16 when they will be asked to apply for PIP.
The Motability Scheme will work with PIP in the same way as it currently does with DLA. Motability will continue to lease cars to disabled people who receive either:
If you are an existing DLA recipient who is awarded the Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of PIP, then your Motability lease will continue as you move from DLA to PIP.
This won't take long...
