KEY MES­SAGES

West Lothian Courier - - Info.. Info.. Info -

These are the key mes­sages for the aware­ness-rais­ing cam­paign: Find out if you’re eli­gi­ble for this sup­port Make sure you’re get­ting the help you’re en­ti­tled to. So­cial se­cu­rity is an in­vest­ment in ev­ery­one and is there to help peo­ple when they need it.

It is es­ti­mated that more than half a mil­lion (500,000) in­di­vid­u­als and fam­i­lies in Scot­land are not claim­ing the ben­e­fits they are en­ti­tled to. Changes in life cir­cum­stances and life events mean any­body could need sup­port at some point in their lives (i.e. it could ap­ply to any of us one day).
