Information on Social Welfare, Benefits and Entitlements
At Cork ARC Cancer Support House we understand that a cancer diagnosis can have major financial implications on your life. Many cancer patients and their loved ones face a financial crisis during treatment (Irish Cancer Society). We also understand that the amount of information you will be faced with can seem overwhelming.
At Cork ARC we can help you in this process. A volunteer with a background in general welfare and benefit entitlements is available to offer information and assist with application forms for the following:
- Illness benefit
- Invalidity pension
- Disability allowance
- Carer’s benefit/assistance
- Medical cards
If you would like to find out more about your social welfare options, benefits and entitlements, please get in touch to book your appointment.
