What is Attendance Allowance?

If you are aged 66 or over, whether working or retired and are suffering from any medical conditions, then you could be eligible for more than £5,000 tax-free every year if you are entitled to it.

Common Attendance Allowance Questions

How much is Attendance Allowance?

The amount of Attendance Allowance varies depending on the level of care needed. As of April 2023 the lower rate is £68.10 per week and the higher rate is £101.75 per week. Any money you do receive doesn't need to be spent on your care.

From April 2024, Attendance Allowance will be increasing by over 6.7%! The higher rate will increase from £101.75 to £108.55 a week, that’s £942 a month per couple. The lower rate will increase from £68.10 to £72.65 a week, that’s £629 a month per couple!

Is Attendance Allowance means-tested? 

No, Attendance Allowance is not means-tested, which means your income and savings will not affect your eligibility.

How do I secure my Attendance Allowance? 

You can apply for Attendance Allowance yourself; however, 60% or more are unsuccessful at completing the 30 page document and are refused.

Our team of specialist advisors can help you complete the application process on your behalf and we have a success rate of over 90% at helping clients secure the benefit.

We can help you secure this lifelong benefit, and we charge no upfront fee. Should your application be successful we charge a fee of £400 plus VAT, which is usually covered by your first back dated payment. All subsequent payments are 100% yours to keep and spend however you like.

We are unable to apply on your behalf for attendance allowance if you have already submitted an application. 

How long does it take to receive Attendance Allowance?

It can take up to 12 weeks to receive Attendance Allowance, but if successful, your claim starts from the day your application is acknowledged by the DWP. We typically see our clients receive a decision in just 6-8 weeks. This is significantly faster than when applying yourself or via other services.

Is Attendance Allowance taxable?

The money you receive isn't taxable or means-tested – so your savings or income won't affect your claim. Claiming also won't affect any other benefits you receive. In fact, it can actually help you get other benefits such as Pension Credit, Housing Benefit, or Council tax Reduction.
