Blind Person's Allowance

What you'll get

Blind Person’s Allowance is added to your yearly Personal Allowance - the amount of money you can earn before you start paying Income Tax.

Tax year Blind Person’s Allowance
2018 to 2019 £2,390
2017 to 2018 £2,320

If you and your spouse or civil partner are both eligible, you’ll each get an allowance.

You can transfer your Blind Person’s Allowance to your spouse or civil partner if you don’t pay tax or don’t earn enough to use all of your allowance.
