We recommend you carry out a benefits check if you are struggling financially. It is also worth checking your eligibility if you have a change of circumstance such as: 

  • Having a child 
  • Reduction in your household income 
  • Losing your job 
  • Moving in with a partner 
  • Separating from a partner  
  • Changes to your long-term health  
  • You’ve reached state pension age  

You can carry out a benefits entitlement check yourself, the calculators in the link below are free and details will be kept anonymous.
