Claiming your Entitlement

Benefits are not a gift, they are an entitlement, they should help provide for yourself and your family and allow you to live your life with dignity when your income is insufficient for your needs. Government figures show that up to an estimated £10 billion of pension credit, housing benefit and income support were left unclaimed in a single year, leaving them missing out on an average £2500 per family. Benefits are generally spent locally, meaning it doesn’t just help you but supports the local economy as well.

If you are unsure, a first step may be to check your entitlement. There are 28 types of benefit that you may be entitle to. Our advisers can skilfully and quickly take you through your own personal situation and tell you what you will or may be entitled to.
