People claiming their State Pension entitlement are set to receive an income boost of 10.1 per cent from April as part of the annual uprating from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

However, older people also claiming tax-free disability benefits including Attendance Allowance, Disability Living Allowance (DLA), Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and Adult Disability (ADP) could potentially see their income increase to over £1,500 per month.

The exact amount someone over 66 will receive depends on a number of factors including the disability benefit, the award rate and the amount of State Pension they receive.
