1 Mins read

Sinn Féin MLA Philip McGuigan has encouraged older people to check if they are receiving all the benefits they are entitled to.

Speaking after raising the issue with the Minister in the Assembly Mr.McGuigan said;

“I know from the work in my own constituency office that there are many older people who are not receiving all the benefits that they are entitled to. As a result some older people are living in poverty.

“I understand that the benefit system can seem complicated for a lot of people but I would encourage older people or their families to seek a benefit check to make sure that they are receiving all the benefits that they are entitled to.

“There is also a lot of help out there in the form of the affordable warmth scheme, winter fuel payment that goes beyond benefits payments that can help the quality of life for our elderly.”
