    Hi @HOWSY - & welcome to the community. In answer to your query.....it all depends. You could look through Scope's section on benefits, & see if anything might be applicable.
    As you will see there are many variables to look at with benefits.....your financial situation; who if anybody you live with, are you able to work, etc. in some benefits, & do you have problems with activities of daily living &/mobility for the Personal Independence Payment. Have a look through, & please come back with any questions. :)

    HI and welcome,

    Having a blue badge doesn't automatically entitle you to any benefits. PIP has replaced the old DLA and is awarded based on how your conditions affect you daily. It's not means tested so income/savings/capital do not affect the amount you can claim.

    For any other benefits then it really depends on your circumstances.
