Benefit you can claim on top of attendance allowance
Posted: Mon Jan 28, 2019 7:10 pm
My mum (85, blind, limited mobility) has just been awarded the lower rate attendance allowance. A very nice lady from the DWP helped her to complete the forms and said that if/when mum was awarded AA she could also apply for a further £30pw as no one is claiming carers allowance on her behalf. Unfortunately I didn't make a note of what this benefit is called or how to claim it, and I haven't found anything searching online. Can anyone advise me please? Thank you!
