BRITS struggling with the cost of living can now find out what benefits they're entitled to

The government has introduced a new benefits checker tool which helps people find the financial support they need like Universal Credit

Since the cost of living soared this winter, costs of bills are now rising to an eye-watering £2,800

The new benefit checker tool is free to use on the website and you only have to answer a few questions

The information you'll need to have ready includes how much income you and your family earn, if any, and if there are any disabilities within your household

In order to get support, you'll need to actually make a claim - the benefits checker only advises what help you might be eligible for

It's important you do a thorough check on your eligibility - It's thought that around half a million families are missing out on just under £1billion in child benefit

The biggest benefit going unclaimed is council tax support, with nearly three million missing out on £2.7billion between them
