Benefits

Frequently Asked Questions
What can I help with?

I can contact the Department for Work and Pensions about your Universal Credit, Personal Independence Payments (PIP), Job Seeker’s Allowance (JSA), Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), Carer’s Allowance, Carer’s Credit, Pensions, Support for Mortgage Interest (SMI), Child Benefit, and other benefits.

I can also contact Lambeth Council about local government benefits (including Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support).

What information do you need to provide?

I will need your full name, address, contact details, and National Insurance number. You should also provide any other reference numbers you have been given.

Can I help you apply for benefits?

As an MP I am unable to assist with submitting applications for benefits. I would recommend contacting Job Centre Plus, whose contact details are listed on this page.

How long does it take to receive a response?

I represent over 100,000 constituents and receive several hundred emails, letters and calls every week many relating to urgent casework issues. My small team and I make every effort to respond to all constituents as quickly as possible, however this can take up to 20 working days.

If I have made representations on your behalf I will inform you as soon as I receive a response. Please be advised that it can take up to six weeks for me to receive a response.

How will your personal data be used?

Under UK data protection law I am the data controller for all personal data that you share with me in relation to constituency casework and correspondence. You can read more about this here.
