What is Attendance Allowance?

Attendance Allowance is a benefit that you might be able to claim if you need help with care or have an illness or disability.

The amount you get is based on the help you need, not any help you do or don't actually get. There are two different amounts, depending on how much help you need. Any money you do receive doesn't need to be spent on your care.

The money you receive isn't 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
