• Disability Living Allowance – if you’re under 16
• Personal Independence Payment – if you’re 16 or over but under pension age (Women under 65)
• Attendance Allowance – if you’re over 65 You can only claim one of these at a time.
If you look after someone who is receiving one of these benefits you may be able to claim Carers Allowance.
