Supplying evidence to the Benefits Service
If you are supplying evidence to the Benefits Service you can do this in person or by post. You can call at either Barnet House or Burnt Oak Library weekdays between 9am and 4.30pm, you do not need to make an appointment to do this.
If you bring your documents to Barnet House or Burnt Oak Library, we will take copies of them and hand the originals back to you.
If you send them by post, we will return them to you via the Royal Mail. Documents will be sent second class unless you provide a pre-paid envelope in which case your documents will be returned as you have requested. Items such as birth certificates, driving licences or passports will be returned via Recorded Delivery.
To see an advisor, you will need to make an appointment in advance.
