At present Attendance Allowance is paid to 1.5 million people over 65 and is not means tested. Recipients do not have to spend the Allowance on personal care. The idea has raised fears that the benefit could be restricted or capped.

If you have ever wondered if you could be entitled to the allowance now is the time to find out and make a claim otherwise it could be too late!

Benefit Information Services are offering a free check to see if you could qualify for this allowance. If you are OVER 65 and would like further information ring 0333 121 2128, text “AA Check” to 07833 491985 or email [email protected]
