Welfare Reform Act & Older People

Lawrence D in Barking
We had a very succesful meeting in Becontree Leisure Centre on this issue on 28th Nov. I said I would post some feedback. Very good speakers from B&D Citizens Advice Bureau, DABD ,B&D Housing and Customer Services Dept's.
There is too much information to put in this Post, suffice to say that in April 2013 all new benefit claims will go online, no forms will come through the post anymore. If you would like to learn how to use the Computer you can join our Silver Surfers Club, phone 0208 526 8200 for details.
There is no need to worry about current Benefits for Older People they will more or less stay the same, some Older People might get even more money.The new 'Bedroom Tax' starts in April also but Pensioners will not be affected only 'working age' people.
The Council Tenants Participation Team are having a similiar meeting on 31st Jan. between 10-3 at the Village Community hall, Vicarage Road, Dagenham, RM10 9SD, or alternatively for more info look on the Age UK website .Happy Xmas & New Year from Silvernet.
