If you have a lifetime dla award, does the lifetime award transfer to ADP

“ Migration will be a two-stage process, with a transitional award made on the basis of (and at the same rate as) the transferring individual's previous DLA award, followed by a review against the ADP criteria and descriptors within 12 months of transfer.“

    I already get DLA

    Most people in Scotland will need to move from DLA to ADP if:

    • you tell the DWP about a change in circumstances
    • your DLA is ending or needs renewing
    • you ask to move to ADP
    If there is no change of circumstances, dla not due to end or renew and I don’t ask to move, when would I move over

    Hi @andrewstevenson! 😊 Lovely to have you join us. I am sorry, I am not an expert in Benefits Advice. I know some people are getting transferred from DLA to PIP. I hope someone here is able to answer your query.

    As far as I've been able to find out there are no plans to start a managed migration until 2024 at the earliest. Please see: https://www.gov.scot/publications/scoss-scrutiny-report-draft-disability-assistance-working-age-people-transitional-provisions-miscellaneous-amendment-scotland-regulations-2022/pages/5/   which says:

    'The Scottish Government has not set out a plan for future managed migration, but the wording of the Transitional Provisions Regulations does not limit their application to the natural and voluntary migration groups – in principle, they could also be used for managed migration. However, the Scottish Government has told the Commission that decisions on how managed migration will take place have yet to be made, with the process not getting underway until at least 2024 in any case (after the completion of managed migration from PIP to ADP). Bespoke arrangements will have to be made in the future to facilitate the transfer to the Scottish system of people who were older than state pensionable age on 8 April 2013 and remain in receipt of DLA'.

    The OP's query seems to be about a 'managed migration' of DLA to ADP (Adult Disability Payment in Scotland) @Jo_2022

    So does that mean that DLA to ADP managed migration doesn’t kick in till at least 2024, do they know how long it will take to move everybody over from DLA to ADP. Also what if it was DLA indefinite award

    Yes, it sounds like managed migration won't start until 2024 at least (& these things often take longer). I'm sorry I haven't been able to find out about any changes from having a lifetime award, nor how long it's estimated that everyone will be moved onto ADP. ADP is very similar to PIP, & when I transferred from a lifetime award of DLA to PIP, initially I only got it for 3 years.
    Hopefully someone else may know more about this.
