Make those aged 65+ eligible to a mobility element for disability benefits

Petition Details

With age comes SIGNIFICANT functional mobility issues for many. Allow those aged 65+ with mobility issues access to a mobility component of disability benefits (Personal Independence Payment and Attendance Allowance).

Additional Information

With old age comes mobility functional difficulties for many elderly. This curtails and removes their independence, which brings undue financial pressure on Social care. With financial help via a mobility component would help remove the strain.
