Benefit Top Tips
Each benefit brings its own rules, regulations and potential pitfalls. Some are means tested so entitlement depends on your savings/capital; some are available to all and others aren't; some depend on previous years' National Insurance Contributions; some depend on you being ill or disabled; some depend on your age; some depend on your earnings; others depend on you having children.
Sutton Carers Centre top tip is open the envelope as soon as it arrives, (don't be scared by how heavy it looks!) and give us a call as early as possible if you need to, so we can help you complete the forms before the deadline for submission.
