As an organisation, we advise people with asbestos diseases about the social security benefits they can get.
Where a person with an asbestos disease has passed away, family members may be entitled to social security benefits.
There are particular benefits which many people with asbestos diseases are eligible for, such as Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit, and payments under the Pneumoconiosis etc. (Workers Compensation) Act 1979.
Even people with a high income, or a lot of savings, may be entitled to these particular benefits.
Benefit rules can be complicated. Please contact us before applying for any of these benefits yourself.
We have a wealth of experience in this part of the benefits system, and our advice is always free.
If we think you are entitled to benefits, and you live in our area, we will always try to visit you at home.
