Attendance Allowance for Terminal Illness
Those who have been given the prognosis of a terminal illness may benefit significantly from Attendance Allowance.
A person may apply for Attendance Allowance under the “special rules” if a medical professional has stated that they do not expect the person to live longer than six months.
The applicant is exempt from the requirement to have needed assistance or supervision for six months when applying under the special rules. The allowance may be given right away. This may offer crucial support during a trying time.
