Welfare benefits

If you need support with claiming benefits

At the supported employment service, we have a dedicated member of staff (a welfare rights officer) who can help and advise you and your family or carer with your benefit entitlements and how they would be affected by getting a job.

The job coach will arrange for you to speak with our welfare rights officer who will first make sure that you are getting any benefits to which you are entitled. They will also advise you on how this will change when you find a job.

Our case studies will show you how this might work.

If you would like to know more about benefits and North Lanarkshire Council's welfare rights services, please use the links on this page.
