Welfare benefits for pensioners courses
To provide those who work with pensioners, with an overview of the welfare benefits system and the eligibility criteria of specific benefits.
Also to be able to advocate effectively, ensuring that service users are receiving their full entitlement to financial support in terms of welfare benefit.
This course is aimed at Dorset Council staff in the first instance, but we would look to offer non Dorset Council staff any spaces still available nearer the time at a cost of £40.
Ideally you may want to consider looking for another Training provider as we cannot guarantee space for your staff
The Dorset Council Adult and Community Services current pricing policy is under review and may change later in the year.
By the end of the course participants should be able to:
- recognise the eligibility criteria for the benefits that their service users and their carers should be entitled to
- signpost service users and carers to the correct agencies in order to make a benefit application
- understand the appeal process and be able to assist service users and their careers in challenging disputed claims
