Staffordshire County Council have launched a benefit checker app on its website called “Entitled To” to enables residents to easily input their details and find out what benefits they may be entitled to.
People are encouraged to use it directly themselves, but are also keen for all our partners, staff and volunteers to promote it with residents, the e-video link shows how simple it is to use.
Staffordshire County Council is also training volunteer staff to help people who may not have access to the internet or struggle with literacy issues. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The calculator is free to use, and it should only take 10 minutes to complete – all details provided are anonymous. Before the client starts, they’ll need information about their savings, income, pensions and existing benefits (for themselves and their partner).
