Minister Announces New Maximum Sums

Minister for Disabled People Anne McGuire yesterday announced an increase in the maximum sums payable by the ILF. 

For the 1993 Fund the maximum weekly award will increase from £420 to £455 and the overall limit of ILF/Local Authority funding for new packages increases from £715 to £785.  The maximum Extension Fund award will increase from £715 to £785 per week. 

These increases take effect from 1 April 2006.

Please note that if you are receiving an award from the ILF your payments will only be increased following a reassessment due to a change in circumstances or a review. 

Updated policy guidance will be published shortly.
