    Attendance Allowance is for those of state pension age and above. PIP is for those under state pension age.(unless you've already got an award when you reach this age)
    If you're state pension age and above, you can't claim both PIP and AA. A claim for AA will end the PIP award and there's no mobility part to AA.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hello @Phil1953

    Welcome to the community! :) I hope you are well?

    I hope Poppy's answer has helped you. Can I ask, have you used a benefits calculator? It may give you an idea of everything you can claim.
