Attendance Allowance helps with extra costs if you have a disability severe enough that you need someone to help look after you. How much you get depends on the level of care that you need because of your disability and not the disability itself.
You could get help with personal support if you are both:
- physically or mentally disabled
- State Pension age or older
It does not cover mobility needs.
The other benefits you get can increase if you get Attendance Allowance. You do not have to have someone caring for you in order to claim.
If you want help to apply for Attendance Allowance or would like further information please contact us.
