Each year, up to £3.7 billion goes unclaimed by older people. Let us help make it easier.
We have helped older people in Oxfordshire receive an additional £28 million of benefits since 2001 by working with you to check your entitlement, helping you to complete claims and sorting out problems.
If you are over state pension age you may be entitled to one
of a number of benefits, including:
- Attendance Allowance
- Carers Allowance
- Pension Credit
- Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support
Some benefits are based on a person’s health, physical or mental disability, others on the person’s financial situation. A number of benefits are interlinked so that receipt of one benefit triggers or increases entitlement to another.
Entitlement rules can be quite complicated, and everyone’s circumstances are different. It is therefore very important to get expert advice on what you may be entitled to.
Personal circumstances change as we get older: health can deteriorate, housing situations change, and bereavement can affect us all. Major life changes can bring about new entitlements to benefits, so it is particularly important that if you have recently experienced a major change in your life you find out if this has affected your entitlement to benefits.
To check that you are recieving all the benefits you are entitled to, contact us on 0345 450 1276 or email us with your query.
