Richard Gass, of Glasgow City Council, has produced a briefing note on Passported benefits.  Passported benefits are benefits that somebody will receive because they are in receipt of another benefit. Because of welfare reform and changes to the benefit system the qualifying conditions have changed.  The introduction of Personal Independence Payments, which will replace DLA and Universal Credit, which will replace many other benefits means that these changes are necessary.  Blue Badges, Concessionary Travel and Free School Meals are examples of passported benefits.
