Attachment of Benefit

If an arrangement fails, or is not offered, we can attach certain benefits that a person may be receiving. Although we can apply to attach a person's benefit, the decision to do so rests with the Department for Work and Pensions. They will be aware what the person is receiving and whether, or not, the attachment is acceptable.

We can presently attach a person's:

  • Income Support
  • Job Seeker's Allowance
  • Employment Support Allowance
  • Guaranteed Pension Credit
  • Universal Credit
