Attendance Allowance

Attendance Allowance helps those over state pension age with the added costs associated with care needs due to health conditions or disabilities.

It’s tax free and you can get it regardless of any other income you or your household receives.

Being entitled to Attendance Allowance can enable you to qualify for additional premiums on other benefits, such as Housing Benefit, Universal Credit and Pension Credit.

To get help claiming Attendance Allowance, you can speak to one of our Financial Support Officers on 0344 736 0066 or contact your local Citizens Advice Bureau or Welfare Rights Service.
