Are you getting all your benefits?

Are you getting all your benefits?

Kelly Jones, one of our Advisors, explains how we can help tenants with their benefit claims.

“I’m a Welfare Benefits Advisor at Together Housing. Not all of our tenants are aware we provide this service. It takes us only 20 minutes usually to check a tenant’s benefit entitlements. This could be the best use of your time that day and, more importantly, will make you feel a whole lot better knowing you’ve got someone helping you. Most tenants we help say they wish they had come to us sooner.

Whatever your situation, whether you are in work or not, we can do a benefits check to see if there is something you might be able to claim, so you aren’t missing out on anything that is available to you. We can help with making claims and assist when there may be an ongoing benefit issue that is proving difficult to resolve.

Speak to us

The benefits system is complicated and can be quite overwhelming at times. Not knowing what to claim is usually the first step, then it’s a case of advising the tenant on how to claim. We can help with all of that.

If you work but find yourself made redundant or out of work due to sickness then speak to us. We can tell you what is available for you to claim and how to do it. In some cases we could also assist you with completing any forms you have to fill in.  

If you’re moving onto Universal Credit, always keep your journal updated and always attend all appointments. If you have any questions or concerns about Universal Credit then get in touch with us. If you’re getting into arrears with your rent, get in touch with us immediately to let us know what is happening. If we know about it we can try to help.

There isn’t only our Welfare Benefits Team, we have other teams too which can also offer assistance, for example help with budgeting and dealing with debt. The sooner we know about your problem, the quicker we can try to help.

Ring us for a chat, don’t let it be too late!”
