Request an appointment for specialist help with benefit appeals

You can use this form to request an appointment with an advisor for specialist help with a benefit appeal.

You can fill this form out for yourself or for someone else.

Find more information about benefit appeals on our help with benefit appeals page.

You can request an appointment if you:

  • live in Stockport or work for Stockport Council
  • have submitted an SSCS1 or SSCS5 appeal form and need further advice and assistance with your appeal

Before you start

If you're filling this form out for yourself you'll need to tell us:

  • your contact details
  • your support or key worker details (if you have one)
  • which benefit you're appealing
  • your benefit appeal reference number (if you have one)
  • the days and times you're unavailable for an appointment

If you're filling this form out for someone else you'll need to tell us:

  • their contact details
  • your contact details
  • their support or key worker details (if they have one)
  • which benefit they're appealing
  • their benefit appeal reference number (if they have one)
  • the days and times they're unavailable for an appointment

You should try to bring someone with you to the appointment who can translate in English. If you can’t bring someone with you, we may be able to provide an interpreter. We’ll be in touch to discuss this with you if we can offer you an appointment.

If you tell us your email address, we'll send detailed information about your appointment, your circumstances and the advice we have given you.
