Disability Living Allowance (DLA) provides a non-contributory, non means-tested and tax-free contribution towards the disability-related extra costs of severely disabled people who claim help with those costs before the age of 65.

DLA can be awarded for a fixed or an indefinite period. People can continue to receive the allowance after reaching age 65 if they continue to satisfy the entitlement conditions.


From April 2013, Personal Independence Payment (PIP) is replacing Disability Living Allowance (DLA) for eligible working age people aged 16 to 64.


This dataset excludes people with entitlement where the payment has been suspended, for example if they are in hospital.
