Benefits Chat (30 April)

Get some socially-distanced help from Terry

The world of benefits can be a confusing place. If you’ve got questions about Government social support and what you might be entitled to, join a chat session with MRS-Independent Living Advice and Community Worker, Terry Bednall.

Terry has told us …

“This session will be the first of three on Welfare Benefits.

This week, we will focus on post-retirement benefits. I will introduce the series, and then the topics will be pension credit and attendance allowance, each followed by questions and experience sharing.

I may offer my phone number so people can call me for a one-to-one follow up.”
