Welfare benefits when living with a lung condition

We’ve put together a basic guide to benefits for people living with a lung condition, or caring for someone with a lung condition, in England, Scotland and Wales. This information was updated in December 2020.

If you live in Northern Ireland take a look at the NI Direct page and the AdviceNI pages. You can also call the Benefit Enquiry Line 0800 232 1271 Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm or email [email protected]

For general advice on welfare benefits, give our helpline a ring on 03000 030 555.
