Abstract/Citation: Made for the purposes corresponding to those of the Disability Living Allowance and Disability Working Allowance 1991, and amends social security law to introduce disability living allowance and disability working allowance. Article 3 provides for disability living allowance, including a care and a mobility component. Article 4 restricts attendance allowance to people over 65 years who are not entitled to the care component of disability allowance, dissolves the Attendance Allowance Board and abolishes mobility allowance. Article 5 establishes a Disability Living Allowance Advisory Board. Article 6 provides for the management of disability living allowance and attendance allowance, including adjudication arrangements with a right to appeal to a Disability Appeal Board. Article 8 introduces disability working allowance as an income related benefit. Articles 9 to 11 make supplementary provision in respect of adjudication, family credit and other benefits.
