The benefits system is very complicated and can be extremely difficult to access. The rules are changing all the time.
Please click here to open our Brain Injury: A guide to claiming benefits. This leaflet aims to give you some basic information on some of the benefits and other help you may be entitled to following an acquired brain injury.
The rates of benefits have not been inserted in this leaflet. This is because the amount you may be entitled to for most benefits varies widely depending on a number of circumstances such as your age, the length of time you have had a disability, the extent of your disability and any savings and income you may have.
Please note that not all benefits are affected by these factors. For information on current benefit rates and criteria go to www.gov.uk
