How we can help you claim financial assistance

When you’re ready to buy, our Entitlements Advisors can offer support and advice on your allowances.

Introducing Entitlements Advice

We offer all our customers entitlements advice to help you understand which allowances you may be able to claim and how much financial support you could receive. It’s all part of the service.

Are you eligible for more financial support?

It’s easy to find out. We offer a free, confidential review service with our specialist advisors.

According to Age UK and CAB, retired people in the UK fail to claim over £5 billion a year to which they may be entitled*.

  • Do you know that Attendance Allowance is not means tested and could be worth up to £87.65 per week?
  • Are you entitled to help towards ground rent** and service charges?
  • Are you eligible for Pension Credit? Or a reduction in your Council Tax?

Even if you think you are not eligible now, you may be entitled to receive certain allowances once you have moved in or if your situation changes in the future. It’s certainly worth a conversation with one of our dedicated Entitlements Advisors.

Many McCarthy & Stone homeowners already enjoy a level of financial support they never thought possible thanks to our Entitlements Advice team.

Our advisors can review and explain what you’re entitled to and give you assistance with completing forms. They can also refer you to other organisations for specialist assistance if you want it.
