Pensions & Benefits

Through our office we can arrange a benefits check with the Department for Work & Pensions (DWP) who will come to your home and help you access all the benefits you are entitled to.

Attendance Allowance

Think you might qualify for attendance allowance? This is a non means tested benefit for people over State Pension age who need help with personal care because of illness or disabilty. We are able to make refferals in our office to Age Uk Leicestershire & Rutland, who can send out a volunteer to help you fill in forms to claim attendance allowance.

Pension Credit

Pension Credit is an income-related benefit to give you some extra money in retirement. Research shows that around 40% of families eligible for Pension Credit don’t take it up, with over three billion pounds worth of pension credit going unclaimed in 2018!
