Is Direct Payments the same as other benefits?

No – Direct Payments are not a benefit. Direct payments are made by a Local Authority to an individual to purchase their own services. They are not a form of income and should not be regarded as such.

They are also different from the Department of Work and Pensions ‘Direct Payment’ which is a means of paying either benefits or a pension directly into an individual’s bank account.
