Attendance Allowance

Attendance Allowance is a benefit for severely disabled people aged 65 or over who need help with personal care. People aged under 65 who have care needs should claim Personal Independence Payment (PIP).

Attendance Allowance is not means-tested and it's tax-free.

Attendance Allowance is awarded as either as an ongoing benefit or for a fixed period, determined by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
