Hello fellow members!
While there are many organisations who can give free & confidential advice about the benefits you may be eligible for, this post is inform you about the Benefit Calculator service from Turn2us (if you didn't know about it already).
We do have a useful list of ALL of the many organisations you may like to contact to enquire about benefits & you can find this on our website under the ' Benefits & Fibro' section (soon to be updated)
I assume many of you use Citizen Advice Bureau's benefits assessment by attending an appointment with them which is obviously a very good reliable source of information.
However, now if you have problems accessing this information service due to poor mobility or you are unable to leave the house due to Fibro & it's debilitating nature you can use this easy online benefits calculator.
If you struggle with any of the questions or are unable to use the computer in this way for whatever reason you can call the free phone number below;
0808 802 2000
