Do I Meet the Requirements to Claim the Mobility Part of the Disability Living Allowance?

Answer: You will qualify for the Mobility Part of the Disablilty Living Allowance if you meet all of the following requirements:

  1. You have a physical or mental disability, and
  2. You have difficulty getting around outdoors. Examples of "difficulty" would be:
    • You Cannot Walk at All outdoors
    • You can only walk a short way on a reasonably flat surface before:
        - you feel severe discomfort, or
        - you become unsteady, or
        - you get short of breath or dizzy, or
        - you would put your health in danger if you continued walking
    • You may need someone with you outdoors so that you do not:
        - put yourself or others in danger, or
        - wander off or get lost
  3. You are under 65 when you claim.

You will also qualify if:

  • you are 100% blind and 80% deaf and you need someone with you when you are outdoors, or
  • you have had both legs amputated at or above the ankle, or you were born without legs or feet.

Once you have decided whether you think you qualify for this part of the allowance, go back one step.
