Disability living allowance

Stops after a total of four weeks (either in one stay, or several stays, where the gaps between stays are no more than four weeks each time).

If you claim disability living allowance when you are already in hospital, it cannot be paid until you leave.

If you have a Motability agreement in force when you go into hospital, where payment of the mobility component stops, Motability should not seek to recover the vehicle for up to four weeks.


This is paid for an indefinite period as long as the other qualifying conditions are met. This applies to anyone aged under 18 on the date they were admitted for the current hospital stay.
