Staffordshire County Council Launch Benefit Checker App

Date: Monday, 19th Oct 2020 | Category: Newsletter October 2020

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 ersuline.whittle@staffordshire.gov.uk

 

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).

Access is via an app through our website www.staffordshire.gov.uk or the app can be accessed here https://staffordshire.entitledto.co.uk/home/start
