Changes have been made to the Tax Credit system.

From April 1, 2012, West Lothian residents who have seen changes to their Tax Credits are being urged to contact West Lothian Council’s advice shop to find out if they are entitled to other types of benefits.

A West Lothian Council spokesman said: “Staff at the advice shop can help residents find out if they are missing out on other types of benefits, such as Council Tax benefit or housing benefit.

“Hundreds of people have already benefited from contacting the advice shop. A benefit Ccheck only takes minutes and will help ensure that residents receive the help, advice and support that they need.”
