Disability benefits directory

Disability benefits are a range of options available to people in the UK who are entitled to extra help due to their health condition or circumstances. The three main types of benefit include earnings replacement, benefits contributing to extra costs, and benefits and tax credits to supplement low incomes. You may be entitled to one, or all of these benefits, if you qualify as disabled under the 2010 Equality Act. That means if you have a physical or mental impairment that has a 'substantial' and 'long-term' negative effect on your ability to do daily activities.
