If you become disabled or terminally ill before the age of 65 you may qualify for Disability Living Allowance. If you become disabled after your 65th birthday, you should claim Attendance Allowance.

Basic qualifying conditions

You must have been resident in the Isle of Man or the UK for at least 104 weeks of the 156 week period immediately before you make your claim and you also should have needed help for at least 3 months immediately before you claim (unless you are terminally ill – see below). You should also expect to need care for at least a further 6 months.

DLA has two components:

Applying for DLA

Make your claim as soon as you need help. Request a claim form, complete it and return it to us.

Payment

You can be paid weekly by MiCard or into a bank account every 4 weeks.

See the benefit rates for further details.
