This course is for advisers who support older people and who have an understanding of the benefits system, especially means-tested benefits. This is not an introductory course. Participants will gain an awareness of benefits which can be claimed by people over pension age, and will understand how to ensure that such clients can receive their full benefit entitlement. Particular attention will be given to showing how disablement or frailty in this age group can increase benefit entitlement, and how mixed age couples are treated in social security terms. Fee applicable – see Training Fees page for rates.
