Benefits

Benefits rules and regulations can seem complicated, and are in the process of changing. Many people are entitled to benefits and tax credits to help with daily living costs – and we can help you make sure that you’re getting all the help you’re entitled to.

Citizens Advice and Rights Fife (CARF) can help you with advice and information on benefits and tax credits if you live or work in Fife.

We can also advise on council tax and housing costs, national insurance, payment of benefits, problems with benefits and future changes to benefits.

Here are the different ways we can help you with benefits advice and information:

  1. You can find self help information by clicking one of the boxes on the right.
  2. Give us a call – our advice lines give you access to information, advice and assistance by phone, with a range of dedicated numbers to put you in touch with our specialist services as needed.
  3. Come into an office – if you need to speak to someone in person, come to one of our many offices or outreach drop-in advice sessions. A follow up appointment may be required depending on your enquiry but these can be arranged quickly and easily. Don’t forget to bring along any information that might help us assist you.
