You may be able to claim Attendance Allowance if your ability to keep safe or look after your own personal care is affected by physical or mental illness or disability. It doesn’t cover mobility needs.
Attendance Allowance has 2 weekly rates, and the rate you get depends on the help you need.
Attendance Allowance won’t reduce any other income you receive, and it’s tax-free. You don’t have to have someone caring for you in order to claim, and you can use the money to help with extra costs you have due to disability. You can get an Attendance Allowance claim form by calling the Attendance Allowance Service Centre or claim online.
