Longitudinal-field $$mu$$SR experiments have been performed in unannealed and annealed samples of the heavy-fermion compound UCu$$_4$$Pd to study the effect of disorder on non-Fermi liquid behavior in this material. The observed scaling exponent independent of annealing. Annealed samples exhibited a reduction of the relaxation rate at low temperatures, indicating that annealing shifts fluctuation noise power to higher frequencies. There was no tendency of the inhomogeneous spread in rates to decrease with annealing. The correlation with residual resistivity previously observed for a number of NFL heavy-electron materials is also found in the present work.
