Renfrewshire Council

Take part in a benefit check this November

Are you receiving all the benefits you are entitled to?

Talk Money Week is running from Monday 8 to Friday 12 November and is an opportunity for everyone to be more open about their finances. This year Renfrewshire Council's Advice Works and Renfrewshire Citizens Advice Bureau have teamed up to offer free benefit check appointments to ensure Renfrewshire residents are receiving all the benefits they are due.

We won't just look at income based benefits like Universal Credit we will also see whether you qualify for Scottish benefits like the Scottish Child Payment or Best Start Grants and things like Council Tax Reduction or Free School Meals.  We can also give you some idea of whether you or a family member should apply for disability benefits or Pension Credit.

Appointments will last up to 60 minutes and will take place by video, over the phone or face to face.

Appointments can quickly and easily be booked online here - Book an appointment

You can also call Renfrewshire Citizens Advice Bureau on 0141 889 2121 or Advice Works on 0300 300 1238 and ask for a Talk Money Week appointment.  

We know working out what to claim can be confusing, but we will have trained advisers there to ensure you and your family are getting everything you should be.

We expect places will fill up quickly, so get in now to secure a time that suits you and see if we can help boost the money in your pocket!
