Who is the training for and what will I learn?

This 1.5-hour online course (using Teams) aims to give frontline workers an introductory overview of Pension Credit and Attendance Allowance, two key income top ups that can be life changing for people over State Pension age. We’ll also demonstrate how to use the online entitledto benefits calculator.

This course is aimed at non-welfare benefits advice roles.

By the end of the session you should be able to:

  • explain what Pension Credit is, who may be eligible and how to claim
  • know when to ask for or signpost to specialist advice
  • explain what Attendance Allowance is, who may be eligible and how to claim
  • use the online benefits calculator to help someone see if they may be missing out on benefits
  • have some strategies for starting the conversation about claiming benefits with people who you work with
