Benefits Take-up for Older People

Take up of benefits by Older People living in Northumberland is lower than in other areas, especially the disability benefit "Attendance Allowance" - This benefit can be paid regardless of any other income or savings to disabled people aged 65 or over who meet the criteria.

Northumberland County Council provices benefits advice as part of an adult care financial assessment, including assistance with claims.

The Department for Work and Pensions administers benefits - please click the "contacts" tab above for the contact details.
