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
|Rate||Level of help you need|
|Lower rate - £61.85||Frequent help or constant supervision during the day, or supervision at night|
|Higher rate - £92.40||Help or supervision throughout both day and night, or a medical professional has said you might have 6 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.
