Benefits & Advice

Are you confident that you're receiving all of the income, benefits and entitlements available to help you?
Each year up to £5.5 billion in Pension Credit, Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit goes unclaimed by older people.  Let us help make life easier!
There are 1.6 million people in later life living in poverty.  This is why we have a service for people in Wirral to encourage and help them to claim their entitlements.  We know that over a million older people who are entitled to Pension Credit are not claiming it - this could mean that they are not receiving an extra £1,700 a year each that they should be getting.  Many people do not realise that there are also benefits and entitlements that are not means-tested that they could be receiving.

Our Income Advisors can help people aged 50+ check their entitlement and help you to claim if you are not getting everything you are entitled to.  Last year alone our service helped people in Wirral claim a total of £3 million extra in benefits.

We can also help you secure extra money from a range of charitable trusts and benevolent funds.
