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 - £60 Frequent help or constant supervision during the day, or supervision at night
Higher rate - £89.60 Help or supervision throughout both day and night, or you’re terminally ill

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.

How you’re paid

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