Making a claim

For many people, claiming benfits can seem a little daunting. The first thing to do is phone your local Jobcentre Plus office. Advisers will be able to help you to find out what you're entitled to and guide you through filling in a claim form. Remember that the more information you can give an adviser about your personal situation and financial circumstances, the easier it will be for them to judge what you're eligible for. If you need to make a claim for benefit call:

0800 055 668 (National Number)


0845 6043719 (Local Office Number)
