  • Benefits Information Available via WhatsApp  People can now access the most up-to-date benefits and support information via their smart phones, using WhatsApp. The service, which can be accessed by sending ‘Hi’ in a WhatsApp message to 07860 064 422, has been launched to help combat the spread of incorrect information and to make the correct information easily accessible. DWP is one of the first government departments to provide information via the service which includes information on benefits support available, how to check eligibility and how to apply.
