I made the call
Here are some people who have made the call and are benefiting. The 'Make the Call' line is operational from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays).
Mary is in her mid 60’s and lives in Belfast
Mary contacted “Make the Call” for advice after having a conversation with a friend who had used the service. She had experienced a change in her health conditions and wondered if there were any additional benefits, supports or services she was entitled to claim as she was struggling both financially and emotionally.
During this process, the advisor noticed that Mary was not receiving a Severe Disability Premium (SDP), Attendance Allowance or any help with housing costs due to her low income.
Mary is better off by £161.00 per week, receives help to pay her rates and as a result of qualifying for a blue badge is able to get out and about more.
Joan is 84 and lives in Limavady
Joan heard about “make the call” through a TV ad. With the help of a family member she contacted “make the call” to have a potential entitlement check completed. The advisor carried out a full needs assessment for benefits, supports and services and identified Joan was not claiming State Pension Credit (SPC) or getting help with her rates.
The team followed these up on her behalf.
Joan is better of by £71.00 per week, receives financial help with her rates and also benefits from a free TV licence.
