Don't miss out on benefits you could be entitled to

We regularly speak to customers who are unaware about additional benefits that they could be claiming which often amount to significant sums of money. We would always encourage you to use an online Benefits Calculator such as www.entitledto.co.uk to check if you are receiving the right amount of money in your benefit claims or whether you are eligible for other types of benefits or support.

If your income or circumstances have changed it may affect your benefits

  • If you currently receive Universal Credit and your income has changed (or you want to make a new claim), please visit the DWP website for advice: https://www.gov.uk/universal-credit
  • If you receive Housing Benefit and your income has changed, you will need to contact your local council benefits team.
