    The Disability and Careers Service, which is part of the DWP, is responsible for benefits and services for people who are sick or have a disability, for example, Disability Living Allowance and Attendance Allowance. You may get Disability Living Allowance (DLA) if:
    • you have a physical disability (including a sensory disability, such as blindness) or mental disability (including learning disabilities), or both
    • your disability is severe enough for you to need help caring for yourself or someone to supervise you, for your own or someone else's safety, or you have walking difficulties, or both
    • you are under 65 when you claim
    Normally, you must have had these care or supervision needs or walking difficulties for at least three months and they are likely to continue for at least a further six months. However, if you are terminally ill, there are special rules for claiming the benefit.
    If you are aged 65 or over, you may be able to get Attendance Allowance.
    You can get Disability Living Allowance whether you work or not.
    It is usually not affected by any savings or any income you may have.
