Currently I am receiving Attendance allowance as I am disabled and require care.

 

The company that handle my care are independent organisation who were provided to me by my local council.

 

Presently, I receive care from the company twice a day, however I am unhappy with their workers and the level of service in general.

 

What I would like to know is whether I can withdraw all or part (i.e. receive care once a day) of the service from this care company without affecting my 'Attendance Allowance?'

 

Additionally, would it be possible for me to cancel this care service and select another private organisation of my choosing? Do I have to inform the DWP? Will my attendance allowance be affected?

 

Thanks

Your Attendance Allowance won't be affected. The care you need has to just be reasonable. You don't have to be getting the care.

Thanks for your response...

 

Just so that I am clear... are you saying that I can cancel the care services altogether and my attendance allowance will not be affected?

 

Or are you saying that switching to another care provider (of my choice) will not affect my Attendance Allowance?

 

Do I need to inform anyone regarding these changes if I go with either option?

It doesn't matter what you do. To claim AA, your care needs have to be reasonable. You don't need to be receiving the care.

If you have a spouse or partner, they can do it though as advised above, you don't need to nominate anyone in particular.
