How much Attendance Allowance (AA) could I receive?

If your claim for Attendance Allowance is successful, you will receive one of two weekly rates, depending on how much care you need:

  • a low rate of £57.30
  • or a high rate of £85.60

The DWP will take into consideration the care you need during the day, during the night, and how often you need that care.

We have written a factsheet that explains more about the claim form and gives you lots of useful tips for how to make an effective claim for Attendance Allowance:
