Benefits beyond working age
Tue 28 September, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Many carers find themselves in the positioning of having to access benefits for themselves or the person they care for. Navigating the welfare system can be confusing so come along to this session led by the Money Matters team at VOCAL to ask specific questions about benefits and find out what’s available if you or the person you care for is beyond working age (65 plus).
Duration: 1 week
Who is this online session for?
Carers who are not currently accessing benefits but would like to know more information about what they or the person they care for could be entitled to and for carers who think there might be a change in the benefits they or the person they care for receive.
Carers beyond working age (65 plus).
This event is open to carers residing in or caring for a person in Edinburgh only.
