Quite often things do not go smoothly when it comes to benefits and during these times, we can all do with some expert support

Understanding your benefits and keeping up with all the changes is not easy.

As welfare benefits change, it is your responsibility to find out what you are intitled to, you will not automatically receive them, even if you are eligible.

Our resident Benefits Caseworker who is in the office every Thursday by appointment only can help you with any issues you are experiencing with your benefits and provide you with advice should this be all you require, please use the booking form, or call the office for an appointment.

Good To Know

Many residents are already on Universal Credit (UC), but between 2019 and 2023, everyone receiving what is now called legacy benefits including JSA, ESA, Income Support and Housing Benefits will be moved to Universal Credit.

This will either happen when there is significant change to your circumstances or when The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) decides it is time to move you onto Universal Credit.
