Disability Benefits for Single Parents and Their Children

Disability Benefits for Single Parents and Their Children

If you, or your children, have a disability or illness you may be entitled to help with the costs of the services and support you need. This advice guide only gives an overview of the disability benefits you may be entitled to.

Note: An award of a disability benefit may entitle the recipient to other benefits, premiums or an increase in benefits they already receive. Claimants may also be entitled to back-dated payments which need to be applied for within strict time limits. You should seek advice from a professional disability rights worker, or call the Lone Parent Helpline on 0808 801 0323 (helpline@opfs.org.uk), for further information.

We have done our best to ensure that the Information contained in our advice content is correct at the time of publication. Please check dates and details before use. This advice is not a comprehensive guide to the law, nor a substitute for legal advice. We cannot accept responsibility for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of services offered by third parties.
