If you cannot earn as much as you used to because of an accident or disease caused by your work, you could get up to £71.60 per week Reduced Earnings Allowance.
You can only get it for accidents that happened, or diseases that started, before 1 October 1990.
You may also be able to get Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit (IIDB).
Effect on other benefits
Reduced Earnings Allowance could affect any income-related benefits that you or your partner get.
Contact the Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit (IIDB) centre for details.
Further information on Reduced Earnings Allowance can be found on GOV.UK's website.
