DWP benefits in Swansea

Attendance Allowance (AA) and Personal Independence Payments (PIP) are non-means-tested and non-taxable benefits and can pay for help with personal care. AA is paid to those over 65 while PIP is paid to those under 65. PIP also takes into consideration mobility needs. Rates vary depending on which benefit is claimed and the extent of your needs.

Everyone with eligible needs should claim these benefits but the care element can only continue to be paid if you are funding your own care and do not receive a contribution from your council. As the rules around benefits are complex and change frequently, we recommend you seek advice about what benefits you may be entitled to and how to claim.
