Giving consent for someone else to speak to Social Security Scotland
We told respondents that if they were to be represented by someone else, they would need to inform Social Security Scotland that they were happy to be represented by that person.
One quarter of respondents (25 per cent) said they would want to let Social Security Scotland know that they were happy with someone else speaking on their behalf online using a computer. This was followed by 18 per cent of respondents who said telephone, and 16 per cent who selected post using a paper form. One in ten respondents (10 per cent) said they would like to tell Social Security Scotland in person during a home visit, whilst only 3 per cent said they would like to do so in person at a Social Security Scotland location.
Combined, around four in ten respondents (44 per cent) said they would want to let Social Security Scotland know through an online method (computer, mobile phone or tablet). Eight per cent of respondents selected 'another way'. These respondents listed a combination of the categories listed.
|Online using a computer||25|
|Post using a paper form||16|
|Online using a mobile phone||14|
|In person through a home visit||10|
|Online using a tablet||6|
|In person at a Social Security Scotland location||3|
