Benefits for people over State Pension age

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.

Our 2-hour basic training looks at:

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

You can take part in our training 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!

If you would like bespoke training for a group of 6 or more people we may be able to arrange training specifically for you. Please contact rightstraining@agescotland.org.uk
