1. Overview

You could get £54.45 or £81.30 a week to help with personal care because you’re physically or mentally disabled and you’re aged 65 or over.

This is called Attendance Allowance. It’s paid at 2 different rates and how much you get depends on the level of care that you need because of your disability.

The other benefits you get can increase if you get Attendance Allowance.

You could get Carer’s Allowance to help you look after someone with substantial caring needs.
