Ask Our Advisers

“My father needs more help in managing day to day issues but because he has savings of £50,000, we presume he won’t qualify for any benefits but is there anything available to him?” - Service User

Attendance Allowance is designed for just this situation and like you, many people incorrectly assume it is means tested and so not available to people with savings or a good income. But this is not the case. It is available to anyone who is assessed as needing help regardless of savings or income and with the lower rate being £60 per week and the higher rate being £89.60 per week, tax free, it can make all the difference.
