New application form published

The Independent Living Fund has published a new application form to help further improve its customer service.

Layout and the use of plain English have been carefully considered to ensure the new application form is more accessible and user friendly for ILF applicants and local authority representatives.  The form is also accompanied by a separate guidance booklet, which gives help on how to complete it.

Our old application, financial information and SSD1000 forms have been combined to make one single application form.  Not only does this mean less paper is used but it also avoids unnecessary duplication of information, making the application process easier.  The new form should also help with the length of time it takes us to process applications, as it will help us gather all the information we need in one go.

The layout of the new form also closely matches the procedure for registering our ILF applications on our database, which will enable us to process applications more easily.

Because of all the benefits the new form delivers to our customers we will no longer accept the old version of our application form from 1 February 2010.  Please destroy any old versions of the application form you have kept. 

If you need copies of the new application form you can download the form from our website.  You can also contact us to request copies by phoning us on 0115 9450 700 or 0845 601 8815, or by emailing us at funds@irfs.org.uk.

Please note that this new form is to be used when applying to the ILF.  Separate financial information and SSD1000 forms are still being used for the purpose of reviewing existing ILF users' awards.
