Long COVID and disability benefits

This information applies to England and Wales.

If you have long COVID, you may be able to claim benefits. If you are already claiming benefits, you may be entitled to an increased amount.

To receive some benefits, you will need to describe how your condition affects you. You do not need a medical diagnosis to claim benefits, but medical evidence can help.

Check the assessment criteria for a benefit before you apply.
