What you'll get
Attendance Allowance is paid weekly at 2 different rates - the one you get depends on the level of help you need.
Attendance Allowance is not means-tested - what you earn or how much you have in savings will not affect what you get.
Attendance Allowance rates
|Level of help you need
|Lower rate - £68.10
|Frequent help or constant supervision during the day, or supervision at night
|Higher rate - £101.75
|Help or supervision throughout both day and night, or a medical professional has said you might have 12 months or less to live
If your circumstances change, you could get a different rate. You must report a change of circumstances.
You could get extra Pension Credit, Housing Benefit or Council Tax Reduction if you get Attendance Allowance - check with the helpline or office dealing with your benefit.
If you get Constant Attendance Allowance at the same time, your Attendance Allowance will be reduced by the amount of Constant Attendance Allowance you get.

All benefits are paid into your bank, building society or credit union account.
