    Hi @glesgagirl64  and a very warm welcome to the community, glad to have you around!

    You may find the benefit calculator a very useful tool! Also, Scope has a whole page that explains the benefit processes which you may want to look at 

    If this doesn't help enough then Scope's helpline is available to help with which benefits may be helpful. You can ring them at 0808 800 3333. Similarly, Citizen's Advice may be worth looking at.

    I hope you have a lovely day!
