Did you know that you may be entitled to Attendance Allowance?

You can get Attendance Allowance if

  • you’ve reached State Pension age and
  • you have a physical disability (including sensory disability, for example blindness) and your disability is severe enough for you to need help caring for yourself or someone to supervise you, for your own safety.

Attendance Allowance is not means tested.

It takes 25 days to process the claim for attendance allowance which is paid at two different rates. Lower rate is £60 per week and the higher rate is £89.60.
