Income Maximisation

This new course will help advisors, support and key workers to identify potential benefit entitlement across a wide range of circumstances and show how becoming eligible to claim a benefit can have positive knock-on effects for other forms of assistance provided by the welfare state. The course will:

  • Provide clear examples of where benefit is frequently underclaimed
  • Examine the key issues for carers, disabled people and older people
  • Give simple methods to ensure income maximisation

Who Should Attend:

All workers advising or supporting claimants, carers and their families, advocates and those who plan services for which there is a charge.
