For some clients coming to the UK, particularly those with families, the UK operates a benefits system that many can access. This might particularly be the case if you are working (but have a low income) and living in London where living costs can be very high.
For those with families, the main benefit is child tax credit (and child benefit). The child tax credit acts as a top up to your basic income.
The other benefits that might be available are, working tax credit, housing benefit and council tax benefit, Job seekers allowance and income support.
Other specialist benefits also exist, like disability and carers living allowance.
The benefit system is not always easy to access, and is changing (see updates on Universal Credit), but if you are eligible, we can help you access the system, and we guarantee our experience will be valuable to you.
