    With the cost of living being so high at the moment, a lot of people are struggling to pay their bills. Are you claiming any benefits? If not then whether you're entitled to anything will depend on your circumstances. You could get a benefits check from an agency near you. Or you could use a benefits calculator.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hello @sogol

    Welcome to the community! :) I am sorry to hear you have been struggling with bills. I see Poppy has suggested to use a benefits calculator which I'd encourage you to do too.

    Scope has a brilliant service called Disability Energy Support. I would encourage you to reach out to them as well. They would be able to advise any issues surrounding your energy bills if they are one of the bills you have mentioned.
