If you are unsuccessful in a claim for benefit, we may be able to help you challenge that decision. This may be in the form of general information and advice or we may be able to represent you during the appeal process.

Benefit Checks

If you are unsure about your entitlement, we will be able to check what benefits you should be able to claim. We will be able to advise you on how to make a claim and how long it will take.
