This Is a disability or long-term health condition benefit from people of State Pension
age who are not already receiving PIP or DLA. This is a non-means tested
two components: Lower and Higher, but unlike PUIP and DLA there is no mobility component.
This means that the Attendance Allowance does not facilitate eligibility for
the Blue Badge or the Motability Scheme.
The above is general information only. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss entitlement.
If you are thinking about claiming a higher
rate of benefit to that which you are currently receiving because your
circumstances have changed, then it is important to check matters in more depth
and/or seek advice before proceeding. This is because when the Department for
Work and Pensions are asked to review a person’s benefit entitlement, one of
four things will happen:
It will stay the same
It will go up
It will go down
It will be withdrawn
