Benefit Check Form

The Ross and Cromarty Citizens Advice Bureau can complete a full benefit check on your behalf, all you need to do is complete our Benefit Check Form.   From there, we can determine which benefits you are entitled to and how much they could be worth to you.

You can either:
  • complete the form online
  • download the form and fill it out yourself before returning it to our Alness, Dingwall or Tain bureaux
