An extra amount is designated for those who are considered as living with a severe disability, meaning a payment of up to £1,390 per year could be available.
In total then, those who receive both elements of this payment could get up to £4,600 to help with their needs.
The key issue to consider, though, is that people can no longer make a new claim for Working Tax Credit.
However, HMRC has confirmed people might be able to receive Working Tax Credit, and the disability element with it, where they hadn’t done so before.
