You could get £54.45 or £81.30 a week to help with personal care if you are physically or mentally disabled and over 64 years old. The different rates depend on what help you need.
If you need “Frequent help or constant supervision during the day, or supervision at night” you
should be eligible for the lower rate of £54.45. If you require “help or supervision throughout both
day and night, or you’re terminally ill”, you’ll be paid £81.30. Interestingly, you may be eligible for extra Pension Credit, Housing Benefit or Council Tax Reduction if you get Attendance Allowance. If you have a claim already, contact the office you’ve been in touch
