Hi, does anyone know whether attendance allowance counts towards income for purposes of qualifying for for remission on COP assessment and supervision fees? Without including it mum is well under the £12000 income limit pa. If included it tips it over by about £100.
Many thanks.

I'm pretty sure it counts. There was a period during which my aunt in law qualified for the remission because her only income was the state pension and AA, and I needed to get DWP statements for both to send off to the CoP.
