Right to attendance allowance is not in any way dependent on the income of a family in which there is a disabled person. It should be every disabled child under the age of 16 or over the age of 16, a person with moderate or greater disability, provided that the disability was at the age of entitlement to family allowance. In addition, the benefit also concerns those who are above 75 years of age.

Benefit do not concern people who are located in different types of health facilities, nursing or care if legal guardians do not need in this aspect any costs. The allowance cannot be granted to the people in the correctional facility or prison. Also, persons receiving a pension will not receive attendance allowance. To apply for Attendance Allowance, we can print Social Security. In addition, we should have with each decision on the degree of disability or identity card showing the date of birth if you want to receive benefits based on age.
