Benefits entitlement

We can help you to check what benefits you may be entitled to and help you claim for these. 

If your benefits have changed because of the welfare reform we can help with that too.

The Entitled To website has a benefits calculator where you can find out what benefits you might be entitled to.

If you have difficulties paying your rent, either because your income is low or you have had to stop work, you may be entitled to receive Housing Benefit towards your rent. If you think you may be entitled to Housing Benefit please contact us so we can complete a form on your behalf.

Alternatively, contact Inverclyde Council on 01475 717171. They can help you complete the necessary forms.

If your circumstances change

If you currently receive Housing Benefit and your circumstances have changed you must advise the council.

You can either:

  • Telephone the Benefits Office on 0800 013 1375 and a form will be posted to you
  • Collect a Change in Circumstance form from the Benefits Office
  • Email benefitenquiries@inverclyde.gov.uk asking for a form to be sent by post
