    Hi @NixyB, welcome to our community :) I hope you'll find it helpful and welcoming!

    To know exactly what benefits you're entitled to requires quite a bit of information.

    For example, how much you have in savings, what is your joint income, are you a carer and more questions.

    I can understand if you're reluctant to answer every question, so just incase I'll start off by linking you to Turn2Us benefits calculator. You can put your situation in and it can help you figure out what you could be entitled to.

    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
