You can also claim DLA if you were born after 8 April 1948 and you make a claim in the same year you stopped receiving DLA.
If you are 65 or over
If you or someone you look after is aged 65 or over and needs frequent help due to ill-health or disability you may be able to claim Attendance Allowance.
