Welfare benefits – How we can help

Suffering a brain injury is a traumatic event which can leave you out of work and in need of extra financial support.

Brain Injury Group has partnered with Chase de Vere Personal Injury & Court of Protection, Independent Financial Advisers, to ensure that during this time, you can obtain advice on which welfare benefits may be available to you and your family and guide you through the application process.

Chase de Vere Personal Injury & Court of Protection offer help and support at all stages of the process:

  • Welfare benefits review – to identify which benefits you may be entitled to and the level of benefit you should receive. This review will take into account your individual circumstances and is provided free of charge via Brain Injury Group;
  • Application process – once benefits have been identified, help can be provided to complete application forms ensuring the correct information is provided to allow your claim to be considered. This is especially important for sickness benefits, including Employment & Support Allowance and Universal Credit, as well as disability benefits such as Personal Independence Payment, to ensure they are paid at the correct rate;
  • Appeals – if your claim is refused, Chase de Vere Personal Injury & Court of Protection can offer help and advice on appealing the decision. This could include completing the appeal application on your behalf and supplying written evidence to the court, as well as representing you at any subsequent hearing. With 75% of Department of Work & Pensions (“DWP”) decisions overturned on appeal, getting expert help can make all the difference;
  • Complaints – Chase de Vere Personal Injury & Court of Protection can assist with submitting complaints to the DWP, the Local Authority or HM Revenues & Customs on issues such Housing Benefit, Tax Credits, Employment & Support Allowance.

Changes to welfare benefits in the last 10 years and the introduction of Universal Credit has made this a complicated area to understand. Chase de Vere Personal Injury & Court of Protection’s expertise in welfare benefits will assist you to receive your full entitlement to benefits at the earliest opportunity.
