If you need help with personal tasks such as washing, dressing or bathing the Department of Work and Pensions may pay you Attendance Allowance.
Attendance Allowance paid at one of two rates depending on your level of need. Levels of need are decided through a disability assessment.
Rates: April 2013 – March 2014
- Lower rate - £53.00 per week
- Higher rate - £79.15 per week
You can request a claim form by contacting the Department of Work and Pensions on 0800 88 22 00.
Attendance Allowance is NOT means-tested so you don't need a financial assessment in order to get it.
