Advice House Benefit Training: Disability Living Allowance for under sixteens - bite size
Although working-age people cannot make new claims for DLA, it is still the benefit to claim if you are responsible for a disabled child. This course looks at how to claim, the qualifying conditions and how these differ to those which used to apply to adult claims. We will discuss supporting evidence for claims, reconsiderations and appeals, and the impact of a successful claim on awards of means-tested benefits, including Child Tax Credit and Universal Credit, and the Benefit Cap. We will also look at the potential repercussions of having to claim PIP at 16.
