Access To Benefits




Access to Benefits (Welfare Rights)

Our team of benefits boffins are masters at securing all kinds of money for people over the state pension age.  From Attendance Allowance, Carers Allowance, Pension Credits, Savings Credits and Council Tax Reductions it’s what they do!

In fact; they’re magicians and turn every £1 spent on the service in to £14 of benefits! That’s a mahoosive 1,300% return…

If that doesn’t impress you, let’s put it like this, in 2018 they secured over £1.7 million pounds worth of benefits for older people in Central Lancashire alone.

TV Licence Update – 

Free TV Licences, funded by the Government, for all over 75s will come to an end in July 2020. From 1 August 2020, there will be a new scheme.

Under the new scheme, anyone aged 75 or over receiving Pension Credit will be eligible to apply for a free TV Licence, paid for by the BBC. Pension Credit can be in the name of the licence holder, or in their partner’s name if they are a couple living at the same address.

If Pension Credit is not received – either in the licence holder’s name or their partner’s name if they are a couple – the TV Licence will need to be paid for.

Check to see if you are eligible for Pension credit by contacting our team below.

  • Our Charges

    Consider our boffins like modern-day Robin Hoods, they take from the rich and give to the needy and take a wee percentage, but they’re not greedy!

    Initial Benefit Check Assessment FREE
    Form Filling (single) £50.00
    Form Filling (couple) £75.00

    The charges help to keep this valuable service afloat as without your contribution the Access to Benefits service would not exist and many older people would miss out on valuable funds.
