How much Attendance Allowance (AA) could I receive?

Given the restriction measures currently in place due to coronavirus, some rules around claiming and assessments for benefits have been changed or relaxed in the short term. Please check our Coronavirus (Covid-19): Welfare and benefits section to ensure you are getting the most up to date information or call the RNIB Helpline on 0303 123 9999, from 8am to 8pm weekdays or 9am to 1pm Saturdays.

If your claim for Attendance Allowance is successful, you will receive one of two weekly rates, depending on how much care you need:

  • a low rate of £59.70
  • or a high rate of £89.15

The DWP will take into consideration the care you need during the day, during the night, and how often you need that care.

Further information, including details about the claim form and useful tips on how to make an effective claim, can be found on RNIB's Attendance Allowance web pages.
