Recruitment to the Scottish Government’s Social Security Experience Panels is now open.

If you have experience of the benefits coming to Scotland and you want to contribute to the way benefits are delivered, the Scottish Government Experience Panel are recruiting for more Experience Panel members now.  They are looking for people with personal experience of:

  • Personal Independence Payment
  • Disability Living Allowance
  • Attendance Allowance
  • Carer’s Allowance
  • Funeral Expenses Payment
  • Cold Weather Payment
  • Winter Fuel Payment
  • Industrial Injuries Disability Benefit

The Scottish Government Experience Panels are 2,400 volunteers who are helping us to build a new social security system for Scotland.  Panel members have real experience of the benefits coming to Scotland.  Their insight and assistance is helping us to make sure that our new service works for the people who will use it.

You can find out more about the Experience Panels and register to join here  or call Freephone number 0800 029 4974. You can register online, by phone or by post.

Being a panel member is voluntary, and panel members will receive regular invitations to take part in focus groups, interviews and surveys. There is no obligation to complete any amount of work and panel members can participate as little or as often as they wish.
