Benefits Advice

Disability benefits can be a financial life line for people and their families and when awarded they can work as a passport to help a claimant claim other types of benefits in future.

Claiming or undergoing a benefits review can often be a stressful and emotionally draining ordeal for disabled individuals, parents and their guardians. Benefits forms are complicated legal documents and without specialist help it is common for individuals and their families to word forms in such a way to not deliver the result the claimant is entitled to, or to unwittingly under report the challenges they face.

It is for this reason that the Blatchington Court Trust provides benefits support to aid people to navigate their way through this process as smoothly and as successfully as possible.

It is important when completing benefits forms that they are as correct and as thorough as possible, as this will increase your chances of receiving the correct result and avoiding an unfavourable outcome.
