Benefits and compensation

If you have been given a diagnosis of mesothelioma, there are certain benefits that you may be able to claim along with government lump sum compensation. You should not be put off if you have not claimed benefits before. You have a legal entitlement to some of these benefits and some of them are not affected by your level of household income or savings.

To help you with your benefits and compensation questions, we’ve produced a series of facts sheets that you can download below:

For help in identifying exactly which benefits you are able to claim, for help to fill in the necessary forms or to discuss any problems you have with your benefits you can contact the Mesothelioma UK National Welfare Benefits Adviser, Caroline Barry on our freephone helpline on 0800 169 2409 or email
