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 for the rest of your life.

Attendance Allowance is non-means-tested, so the amount you receive is not affected by your income or savings. This benefit is designed to help with the extra costs of personal care that you may need - but you can spend the money however you like.

You can claim even if you only need a very small amount of help with daily tasks. Examples could be:

  • Difficulty getting in and out of your chair or up the stairs.
  • Struggling to get in and out of the bath, your bed or shower
  • Struggle with any blurred vision
  • Back, knee or hip pain
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis or Osteoporosis
  • Hearing difficulties
  • Breathing difficulties like asthma
  • Anxiety, Stress or Mental Health issues

Who is not eligible to claim?

Please note that you CANNOT receive this allowance if you are already claiming:

  • PIP (Personal Independence Payment)
  • DLA (Disability Living Allowance)
  • ADP (Adult Disability Payment)
  • Attendance allowance
