Our service

Social Security Scotland is an Executive Agency of the Scottish Government. In Scotland we have a number of devolved benefits, and it’s our responsibility to ensure that they are managed correctly and fairly, delivering 11 different types of benefits to the 1.4 million people who rely on them.​

Our headquarters are in Dundee, with a second base in Glasgow. In the future our aim is to have teams helping deliver social security in communities up and down the country.

Dignity, fairness and respect are at the core of everything we do. We demonstrate these values by making our work as transparent and accountable as possible.
