This section will help you learn about the range of benefits, tax credits and other
disability-related financial support you may be able to get.
Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
Disability Living Allowance - sometimes referred to as DLA - is a tax-free benefit for
children and adults who need help with personal care or have walking difficulties because
they are physically or mentally disabled. You must claim before you reach age 65.
Attendance Allowance (AA)
Attendance Allowance (AA) is a tax-free benefit for people aged 65 or over who need
help with personal care because they are physically or mentally disabled.
Incapacity Benefit (IB)
If you can't work because of illness or disability you may be able to get Incapacity
Benefit (IB), a weekly payment for people who become incapable of work while under State
Pension age. It is paid in three weekly rates depending on how long you've been unable
Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
From 2013 the Government is proposing to introduce a new benefit called Personal
Independence Payment for eligible working age people aged 16 to 64 to replace Disability
Living Allowance (DLA).
The intention is that Personal Independence Payment will focus support to those
individuals who experience the greatest challenges to remaining independent and leading
full, active and independent lives.
