I have been told that my application for Attendance Allowance / Disability Living Allowance has been successful – how will this affect my benefit entitlement?
The amount of any Attendance Allowance or Disability Living Allowance you receive is ignored for benefit purposes. However, you should still let the Council know that you are receiving these benefits as you may be entitled to additional premiums which could increase the amount of benefit you receive.
