Ar­gyll team helps ben­e­fit claimants

The Oban Times - - News -

THE WEL­FARE rights team at Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil has helped lo­cal res­i­dents claim more than £3 mil­lion in ben­e­fits.

The to­tal of £3,439,468 is a record-break­ing sum for the team, nearly £1 mil­lion up on the pre­vi­ous year.

Staff dealt with al­most 1,950 cases over the 12 months to the end of March.

The team helps peo­ple find out what they are en­ti­tled to claim. They as­sist with ap­pli­ca­tions and, if a claim is un­suc­cess­ful, can help with an ap­peal, de­pend­ing on cir­cum­stances.
