I am 72 yrs old and became disabled within the last two years. My wife is a year younger and despite poor health is not disabled. When sorting out the state benefits I was steered towards Attendance Allowance due to my age.
Now, the old car is showing signs of its age, as well as us, and I am interested in the Motability scheme.
However, it says that Attendance Allowance is not recognised by the scheme. I wonder why?
Is the scheme limited to those of working age only, or the long term disabled who are transferred to P IP?
I would like to know, thanks
