    Hi 

    It's hard to say without knowing your circumstances 

    Try using a benefits calculator which you can find on here or gov website 

    It depends on lots different factors that only you know

    I’m sorry I don’t know what benefits I have. Haven’t been told or hardly know so how can I tell you if I don’t know myself

    HI,

    We can't help you without knowing what exactly you're claiming. If you can find out and then give us some more information then someone can advise you further.

    Does someone look after your money for you, maybe you have an appointee that claims the benefits on your behalf? If you do then you should ask them what you're claiming.

    Hi @lewissayner

    Thanks for posting :) 

    I'm sorry to hear that you are uncertain about your benefits, hopefully we can help you gain some answers and solutions. 

    As asked above, I'm curious if you have somebody who manages your finances, who will be able to tell you what benefits you are currently receiving, if any? 

    Once you know this, and even if you can't find out, a benefits calculator will help you determine what you should be entitled to. It requires you to enter some of your information, confidentially, and will give you results based on what you provide. You can find a benefits calculator by following this link.

    Alternatively, if you would find it easier to be talked through these things, you can always call Scope's helpline.
