Understanding the benefit system, especially at a time of constant change, is a tricky task, and almost a full-time job in itself. But having just a simple working knowledge of what is out there – and what some of the problems might be – is essential if your elderly clients are going to get the best possible service from you. This session will cover:-

  • The basic rules for getting a State pension and how to increase it – especially for those who are maybe owed ££££’s
  • Disability benefits – do you know your PIP from your AA?
  • Benefits for carers – when to claim carers allowance, when not to and when to claim knowing the claim will fail
  • Housing costs – what’s happening with council tax, rent and housing benefit – and when did the DWP become a Loan Arranger?
  • New methods of benefit claiming and delivery, as well as new terminology such as ‘mixed age couples’ and LEAP
  • The impact of savings
