    Hello @corinne59 Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Thank you for joining and sharing.

    Have a look at our on line benefit checker. It is a handy tool which should give you some idea of what benefits you may be entitled to.

    You can find out more information about benefits.

    On our website.

    We are a friendly, supportive community. Care and share.

    Please ask if we can advise on anything. Some one will know.

    Please take care

    This will totally depend on your circumstances and without knowing any of these it's impossible to advise, a benefits calculator will not help at this stage. I'd recommend a visit to your local CAB for a full benefits check.
