The latest figures from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) show that at the end of August last year, there were over 1.5 million people across Great Britain receiving additional financial support through Attendance Allowance.

The data also indicated that over 136,200 people living in Scotland are currently receiving either £68.10 or £101.75 each week through the benefit.

Attendance Allowance is a tax-free benefit, delivered by the DWP and designed to help older people with daily living expenses which could also help them stay independent in their own home for longer.

However, for some people, whose condition may have worsened or they have developed further health issues since their award began, it may be necessary to contact the DWP to report a change of circumstances.
