    Hello @dita18 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 be able to give you an idea of what benefits you may be entitled to.

    You can also find out more information about benefits on 
    our website.

    Another suggestion I have is to consider speaking to Citizens Advice about benefits. Doing a benefit check or review.  Have expertise in forms and knowledge.

    Benefits are confusing and complex so you need the right information.

    Have a look under Parents and Carers for support, guidance, advice from our community member useful to look at.

    We are a friendly community. Care and share.

    Please ask if we can advise, some one  will know.

    Please take care.

    Hi @dita18

    Good Morning it’s great to meet you today!!!!!

    We have got our own “Online Calculator” which I would be happy 😃 in going through it with you???

    As soon as we have entered all of the relevant info we will get a list of what benefits are going to be available for you.
