UNIVERSAL CREDIT AND BENEFITS CHECKS 

We help with Universal Credit claims and offer Personal Budgeting Support for those who are struggling with their budget and daily living expenses. We also give advice on all benefits.

BETTER-OFF CALCULATIONS

We can carry out better off calculations and relevant checks on eligibility

ASSISTANCE TO COMPLETE FORMS

We help with the completion of forms, i.e. Personal Independence Payment (PIP), Attendance Allowance (AA), Disability Living Allowance (DLA), Child Disability Living Allowance (CDLA), Employment Support Allowance (ESA) and Health Assessment forms (ESA50 and UC50)

APPEALS SUPPORT

DIAL provides information and advice for residents who have been declined benefits and where an Appeal is needed. For clients who have been supported by DIAL from the initial benefit claim we will in some cases attend and support the individual at the Tribunal hearing. A small charge to cover travel costs will be made if the hearing is in Norwich.
