The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is committed to replacing the existing legacy system used in the administration of Attendance Allowance (AA) with a more modern, useable, reliable and supportable end-to-end digital service for citizens and agents. They aim to enable people of pensionable age, who need help to live independently, to get the support they need when they need it and in a way that suits them. It is intended to introduce this digital solution in Northern Ireland (NI) in line with DWP.
