Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
PIP is a benefit for people who need help with everyday tasks, and/or find it difficult to get around because of their disability or health condition.
To qualify you must have had difficulties due to your health condition for at least 3 months and expect it to last for at least 9 months (special rules apply to the terminally ill).
PIP can be paid to people in or out of work and it does not matter how much you have in savings.
For more information please take a look at the videos now available on the DWP YouTube channel.

Attendance Allowance is a benefit for people who need help with their personal care and are State Pension Age when they first claim.
To qualify, you must have had problems for the past 6 months (special rules apply to the terminally ill), be in the UK when you apply and have lived here for at least 2 out of the last 3 years.
Attendance Allowance is paid on top of other income or benefits and it does not matter how much you have in savings.
