Reduced Earnings Allowance

1. Overview

If you can’t earn as much as you used to because of an accident or disease caused by your work, you could get up to £67.88 per week Reduced Earnings Allowance.

You can only get it for accidents that happened, or diseases that started, before 1 October 1990.

You may also be able to get Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit (IIDB).

Effect on other benefits

Reduced Earnings Allowance could affect any income-related benefits that you or your partner get.
