What benefits might you be entitled to?

If you are state pension age, physically or mentally disabled, and need someone to help look after you, you may be entitled to Attendance Allowance. You do not have to have someone caring for you to claim.

If you are under state pension age and have a disability or long term health condition which means you have difficulties with daily living or getting around, you may be entitled to Personal Independence Payment.

You may also be able to claim a discount on your council tax or apply for a grant or other benefits.

There are online benefits calculators to help you work out which benefits you can claim.

DWP provide explanatory videos about benefits in British Sign Language (BSL).

There’s a limit on the total amount of benefit that most people aged 16 to 64 can get. This is called the benefit cap.
