Scottish ADP success rates continue to fall

The difference in success rates between personal independence payment (PIP) and its Scottish equivalent Adult Disability Payment (ADP) are becoming smaller as time passes, though ADP remains the more generous system.

According to the latest figures produced by Social Security Scotland (SSS) the success rate for ADP has fallen from 69% when it was first introduced in September 2022 to 53% in October 2023.

For comparison, the success rate for PIP in October 2023 was 50%.  Whilst this was the highest recent percentage for PIP, success rates have remained at 48% or above for the past six months.

The figures mean that the dramatic difference between PIP and ADP success rates is being gradually eroded.
