Sarah Presto and Steven Westmoreland, Macmillan Welfare Rights Advisers

Next week, we’ll be holding a live webchat all about benefits for pension-aged people affected by cancer.

Our Welfare Rights Advisers Sarah Presto and Steven Westmoreland will be in the chatroom answering your questions from 12-1pm on Thursday 31 January.

Money worries are the last thing you need when you are living with cancer.  If you are of pension age, there may be specific benefits that you can claim, but it can be a nightmare trying to work out what you’re entitled to. Sarah and Steven can help you make sure you’re getting all the benefits you should be, and answer your questions about the application process.

If you’re an older person living with cancer, or you support someone who is, join us in the chatroom from 12-1pm on Thursday 31 January.

If you can’t make it to the chat, you can also post your question in the comments here, and I’ll ask if for you on the day. All the questions and answers will be published here on the blog after the chat.

You can also speak to an adviser like Sarah or Steven by calling us on freephone 0808 808 0000 (Mon-Fri, 9am-8pm).
