The digital world has transformed our daily lives. There is much more technology out there designed to help you access a whole range of services more easily. We have conducted some research and testing to identify some of the free to download document scanning apps that will help you get the most efficient service from us.
In order to process many of the application forms we receive, we must ask for additional information, such as evidence to support an application's eligibility. In most cases this information can be provided digitally, by sending us a scanned digital copy of any document we ask for, direct from your mobile device.
If we ask you to send us copies of any documents, there are free to download document scanning apps available for Apple and Android devices that will help do the job for you.
We have tried and tested the following scanning apps which we think are easily accessible to all, simple to use and which will run on both older and newer versions of your mobile device. Try them for yourself...
