If you need help filling in the form you can phone your local council and ask for help. Alternatively you can visit and see an advisor. If you have restricted mobility or are housebound a visiting officer can visit you at home.  

The date when your benefit application is received by us can affect the date your claim starts. If you are completing a paper application please do not delay sending it in. If you do not have all the documents, send us the form and explain that the evidence will follow.

Where documentary evidence such as proof of identity or income is required along with your form these must always be originals. Photocopies will not be accepted and without this information your claim cannot be processed. Any documents received will be photocopied and returned.
