In the latest edition of our advice blog, our Welfare Benefits Advisor Jen Kelly explains about the new benefit calculator on our website.
The benefits system can be complicated, and the fact that it is ever-changing doesn’t make it any easier!
It's therefore no surprise that some members of the RAF Family are unaware of the benefits that they may be entitled to claim. With this in mind, we wanted to provide an online resource to help.
Excitingly, we have now launched a free online benefit calculator, which is provided by the charity Turn 2 Us. Whether you are already in receipt of benefits, or are not currently claiming any benefits at all, this calculator will outline the benefits you may be entitled to claim.
We are also aware that instead of, or in addition to, needing benefits advice, some members of the RAF Family may also need debt advice.
My Money Steps is a free online debt advice service provided by National Debtline, which can help provide options for dealing with debt and managing money.
