Benefits

I only work part time and have a limited income. Can I get any benefits?

If you work part time and are not getting any benefits you can claim universal credit to top up your income and help with rent. The amount you get depends on circumstances such as how much you earn, the number of children you have and how much your rent is.

You may also get help to pay your council tax and get maintenance payments.

For more information and how to apply for universal credit see https://opfs.org.uk/support-and-advice/your-benefits/universal-credit/

For information on council tax reduction see you local council website.

For information and advice about arranging child maintenance payments see https://opfs.org.uk/support-and-advice/your-children/child-maintenance-arrangements/
