Attendance Allowance

If you are over the age of 65 and need someone support to be looked after and to be kept safe, you may qualify for Attendance Allowance. This benefit is tax-free and can be claimed by someone with a long-term illness or disability (both physical or mental). Different rates apply, depending on whether you need care or supervision during either the day or at night or both.

Attendance Allowance is a benefit that can be paid on top of other benefits you may already receive. Receiving Attendance Allowance may even qualify you for receiving other benefits or an increase in benefits you already receive.
