If you or someone you care for is assessed for adult social care support you will be contacted by a Welfare Benefits Officer as part of the social care assessment process. If this doesn’t happen automatically please contact the Access Team.
The Welfare Benefits Officer will:
- offer a benefits maximisation service to help you claim any benefits you may be entitled to.
- if appropriate, carry out a financial assessment to work out how much, if anything, you should pay towards the cost of your support. Find out more.
