Financial Benefits

At the moment, your family may be receiving one or both of the two main benefits – Disability Living Allowance (DLA) and / or Carer's Allowance. There are also other possible benefits, allowances and tax credits. This section tells you a bit about who gets them and why and where to get more information. 

This section also tells you about the benefit that replaces DLA once people get to age 16 years and how to get ready to apply for this.
