A campaign to ensure that residents in Medway receive the financial support they are entitled to starts in January.
The campaign will run from 17 January until 11 February with advice desks at various places throughout Medway, including the Pentagon Shopping Centre in Chatham, where staff from Medway Revenues and Benefits Service and The Welfare Benefits Unit assisted by the Pension Service, The Kent Benefits Partnership and Voluntary Organisations will be able to tell people whether they qualify for housing, council tax, work, pension or care benefits.
Earlier this year, a similar campaign helped people collect more than £261,000 in unclaimed benefits.
Take advantage of the help and advice available to ensure that you are not missing out on money.
If you've never claimed benefits or have been turned down in the past, or maybe you are thinking of returning to work but are wondering if you will cope- this message is that you have nothing to lose but potentially money to gain.
