Benefits and debt advice - coronavirus update

Check your entitlements to benefits

There are millions of pounds in benefit payments that are unclaimed every year as people simply do not know what they may be entitled to claim.

There are several ways that you can check what benefits you may be entitled to.

The Advice Shop can assist with a benefit check by phone but if you wish to carry out a check yourself then there are some options noted below.

If you have any queries after using a benefit calculator then feel free to get in touch with the Advice Shop on 0131 200 2360 or [email protected]
