Anw survivor benefit

You look after someone, or someone looks after you

If you have been living on your own but are going to start living with someone because either they or you need extensive care, you can keep your Anw benefit. By extensive care, we refer to a situation in which a person is not able to run his or her own household without daily assistance.

Anw benefit may still be payable

Normally, your Anw benefit will stop if you start living with someone. However, if you live with someone in order to give or receive an extensive level of care, you can continue to receive Anw benefit, although the amount of the benefit will be lower than for a person living alone.
