The world of benefits advice is currently very consumed by developments to Universal Credit; the main means-tested benefit for working-age people. This usually means the subject of benefits for the 66+ age group can be overlooked, apart from the annual political debate over the ‘triple lock’.

This update session places the focus back on older people’s benefits, and looks at some tricky but useful areas, including:

  • Some things you might not know about Attendance Allowance, including:
    • The new rules about claims from people who are terminally ill
    • Keeping or losing Attendance Allowance when in hospital or a care home
    • How Attendance Allowance affects a client’s finances when living in their own home
    • How to avoid overpayments and recovery action
  • How some technical knowledge about Carer’s Allowance can enhance means-tested benefits for this age group.
  • How ‘mixed-age’ couples are treated in the brave new world of Universal Credit vs Pension Credit.

By the end of the session, the intention is that you will feel more confident in your updated knowledge of these technical areas and will be able to give your clients useful information, signposting and resources.
