Did you know 1 in 3 older people who are eligible to claim benefits don't do so?
Every year, a large amount of money intended for people on low incomes goes uclaimed by older people in the UK. Could you be one of the people missing out?
If you’re 60 or over, you could be entitled to benefits that you haven’t been able to claim before. These can help you keep your independence and improve your standard of living by helping with housing costs, care needs or general day-to-day living expenses so it’s well worth contacting Age UK Stockport to ensure you are in receipt of all that you are entitled to.
How Can We Help?
If you’d prefer to talk to a friendly adviser about claiming benefits rather than filling in the forms yourself, contact Age UK Stockport for help.
We can explain each benefit and work out what you might be entitled to. It could be a combination of benefits and even a backdated payment.
We can help you to make claims and are able to visit you at home to do so. This is a good option if you find it difficult to leave the house or don’t like talking over the telephone.
