April marks the start of Turn2us Benefit Awareness Month, a national campaign aimed at encouraging those in financial need to check their entitlement to welfare benefits and tax credits. This year’s campaign focus will be the upcoming changes to the welfare system.
Turn2us have launched a campaign website which will feature full information on these changes as well as tips for anyone who is likely to be affected. They also have a free and confidential Benefits Calculator that can help to assess the amount of benefit a person may be able to claim.
Those seeking extra help and advice can contact the Pharmacist Support Helpline on 0808 168 2233 to access our Specialist Advice Services. You can speak to a specially trained adviser who can ensure that you are receiving the correct amount of benefits and also provide help with the completion of forms.
