It should come as no shock that if you have a disability you could get extra money to help you with your daily living.
Our Place has identified these sections for you. Click on each one to read Directgov’s extensive information:

Constant Attendance Allowance
Vaccine Damage Payment
Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit (diseases and deafness)
Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit (accidents)

These benefits are means tested and they won’t reduce other benefits you may be claiming.
In fact, it could actually mean that you are entitled to more benefits so make sure you take advantage of what could be rightfully yours.
It is worth mentioning that some Benefits are changing and for advice about the changes, head to Directgov’s website here.
