Your online benefit claim form will tell you what evidence to provide. You can upload evidence when prompted by the form. For most claims we do not require further evidence for the claim to be made.

Where possible we will use evidence you have previously supplied to us or evidence you have provided to claim other benefits. If we have requested evidence that you were not able to upload with your form, you can upload it on our website. If you are not able to upload your evidence, please follow the guidance below:

Our libraries no longer accept benefits documentation.
