What is Attendance Allowance?

Attendance Allowance (AA) is a benefit for people aged 65 or over who need help with personal care or help to make sure that they are safe. It is paid weekly by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) at two rates (a lower and a higher rate) depending on how much care you need and if you need care during the day, the night, or both.

Many blind and partially sighted people who should be getting Attendance Allowance are currently missing out. If you are one of these people, you could be missing out on at least £57.30 per week tax-free.

Further information on AA including how to make an effective claim can be found on RNIBs Attendance Allowance webpage.
