    Attendance Allowance

    Post by Hell's Granny on Wed 02 Mar 2016, 2:00 pm

    It seems to have been kept fairly quiet up to now, but the Government are planning to scrap Attendance Allowance, the small amount paid to folk who care for an Over 65 disabled Person. It replaces Carer's Allowance when the caree reaches 65. It can make the diiference between a person getting any care or none in their own home.

    There are petitions ,but I'm unsure whether they are 38 Degrees,Change .Org or Government.

    Are you sure they have not just changed the name or even lumped all the benefits into the one "Universal credits allowance.

    I found the Attendance allowance government page here: https://www.gov.uk/attendance-allowance/what-youll-get

    Here's the Carer's allowance info' from the Age UK site: http://www.ageuk.org.uk/money-matters/claiming-benefits/carers-allowance/about-carers-allowance/

    Hope that helps Hells Grannie.

    I think that Paps will have something to say about that.

    Thanks Zathrus, but this one is true; the Government are thinking of it, it just isn't public knowledge yet. Just as they abolished the Independent Living Fund, they kept it pretty quiet.

    I was told by someone in the know, can't say more.

    I will take your word for it HG.

    One to watch out for I think.

    Maybe Paps can tell us more, wherever he is today.

    Hi Zath', and HG.

    I was out yesterday Zath; I do have a life away from this pooter you know. Cool

    This is an interesting thought HG, and after a good look around, I get it from the Carers Trust that the government MAY be considering sticking the Carers Allowance in with the Universal Benefits package.

    Read the site HERE and make your own minds up about this.

    These universal benefits are going to be just a way to make benefits all the harder to get for the poor, the weak, the old and the sick.

    But then again, what else do we expect from this uncaring and evil government.

    Slashing benefits, but still willing to spend up to a hundred billion pounds on Trident.

    I think if there was to be an election at the moment this filthy mob would have no chance of being re-elected.

    Precisely why they have established fixed-term Parliaments.

    Maybe so HG, but five years is a long time to wait to chuck them out.

    Imagine the damage these fools could do in five years.

    Of course they don't HAVE TO survive that long as some governments of the past have destroyed themselves in less time than that.

    If the Tory government split right down the middle over Europe this could be the break that might bring them down.

    Now wouldn't that be nice ?
