Free online benefits workshops

Thanks to funding from the Yorkshire Building Society, Age Scotland is providing new online workshops about benefits and social security for people over State Pension age.

Many older people don’t claim the income they are entitled to, so we want to raise awareness of the benefits that exist to support them, and why older people don’t take steps to unlock their entitlements.  

They are free to attend, and provide useful information for older people and the people who support them.

Benefits for people over State Pension Age

Our 2-hour basic workshop looks at:

  • Setting the scene about older people and benefits
  • Non means tested benefits
  • Means tested benefits
  • What’s changing?

Attendance Allowance: completing the form

Our 1-hour Attendance Allowance application form workshop aims to help anyone who intends to complete an Attendance Allowance form, for themselves or for someone else. It will give you information, strategies and tips to make the process more simple and less daunting.

You can take part in our workshops by video using the free Zoom app.  All that’s needed is a laptop / computer / tablet / smartphone and an internet connection. We do the rest!
