Are you too proud to claim your benefits and tax credits?

While there are many situations in which we can blame the UK government and the authorities for not offering the financial support required in various areas of the community, many people are seemingly still too proud to claim their full benefits and tax credits. Are you one of the thousands of people who are not collecting their full entitlement each and every month?

The benefits system and the tax credit system are there for a reason to help those struggling financially and those with children to look after. For many years the UK government has been under pressure to introduce a new benefits system, and while the tax credit system may not be perfect, you should still at least attempt to claim what you are entitled to. Many people who are not yet claiming their full benefits or full tax credits may also be entitled to back payments which could in some cases add up to thousands of pounds. Would you turn down thousands of pounds if it was offered to you now?

Research has shown that many people are not only embarrassed about claiming benefits and tax credits but they are also put off by the amount of paperwork and information required. However, much of the information required can be gleaned in a very short space of time whether by a phone call or a meeting at your local benefits office. It is painless, it is harmless and it could be very very beneficial to your financial well-being!
