I&A news update
Published on 27 July 2018 02:16 PM
For the period April to June 2018, the Information and Advice team at Age UK Faversham & Sittingbourne helped 40 clients in applying for welfare benefits totalling £158,000; of which to date £100,000 has been approved by the DWP. This sizeable amount of income that we helped secure for our clients also included £16,000 of back dated pension payments, which was owed to an 81 year old gentleman who was unaware that he was not receiving his state pension. The advice and guidance provided by the I&A team can help people in gaining access to financial support that they are often unaware they are entitled to.
