Managing your income and expenditure

If you are eligible for any of these services, you will be directed to the appropriate information to apply.
Once you have completed your budget you can stop there, the tool allows you to come back and update your household budget as and when you need to. Or you can choose to share your financial information with any companies that you owe money to, they are then able to use this information to arrange an affordable payment plan.

Since launching the tool, we have found that the average additional financial benefit per customer is £5,500, so it’s proving very beneficial.
There are no financial obligations and you do not have to go on to claim any benefits – it is purely showing you how you could budget better and what benefits you would be eligible for.
