Benefits

Find out if you are missing out on financial help available to you through welfare benefits.

It's important to make sure that you get all the help that you're entitled to. 

These pages give you information on benefits and tax credits if you are working or unemployed, sick or disabled, a parent, a young person, an older person or retired. There is also information about council tax and housing costs, national insurance, payment of benefits and problems with benefits.

One of the first steps to take is to check whether you are in receipt of all the benefits and tax credits that you may be entitled to. The Benefits Calculator from Turn2us is a free and impartial service that is tailored to your circumstances.calculator.jpg

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has a comprehensive section on benefits which provides information on how to apply and eligibility for a wide range of state benefits. 

There is also a useful guide from the Citizens Advice Bureau who offer a comprehensive overview of welfare benefits. This guide covers issues such as: benefits and tax credits available and how to claim; the benefits cap; changes to benefits; National insurance; low income; sick or disabled and Carers; children and young people; older people; Universal Credit; and housing benefit restrictions.
