Benefits for people who have a disability, or care for someone who does

You can claim benefits to help with the extra costs you may face if you have Parkinson's, or if you care for someone with the condition.

They're not means-tested, which means they're not normally affected by any other income or savings you might have.

You may be able to claim:

  • Attendance Allowance if you're State Pension age and you have an illness or disability which means you need help with your personal care or safety.

  • Personal Independence Payment (PIP) if you need extra help with day-to-day activities or have trouble getting around due to your health or condition.

  • Carer's Allowance if you regularly spend 35 hours a week or more caring for someone with substantial care needs. 

Make benefits work for people with Parkinson's

People with Parkinson's rely on financial support to stay independent and in control. We're campaigning to stop harmful disability benefits cuts.
