Money and finances are always a cause for concern and the benefits system isn’t always easy to find your way round. MND Scotland has a Welfare & Benefits Officer who can help you to apply for exactly what you are entitled to claim.

If you don’t know what you are entitled to claim, or if you are unsure if you are receiving everything that you are entitled to, then our service can help. From offering advice to filling out application forms, our service is designed to support you when you need it most. We can ensure that your income is maximised, and offer advice on a range of practical and financial benefits that may be available to you, your family or your carer.

This confidential service will be offered at a time suitable for, and agreed by you. We can contact you by phone or e-mail, or if you prefer, our Welfare & Benefits Officer may be able to visit you at home.
