Q How does mobility allowance work?


Mobility allowance is a component of certain disability payments. If you qualify for any of the following, then you would be entitled either to have the appropriate level of money paid to you to cover the cost of your mobility needs, or to convert that payment into a contract for a Motability vehicle.

  • Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
  • Enhanced Rate of the Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
  • War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS)
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)

You do need to have at least a full year remaining on your claim to start a new contract.
