    Its about helping people get their entitlement! Not about benefits policy!

    This board is here for help and support for those on or looking to claim benefits, not for judgement.

    It’s ONLY focus is helping people with their money.

    It's here to help people find out what they are entitled to under the current system, and to help them get it.

    Benefits provide a lifeline for many, and this site is here to help people with their money, and not to judge. Of course, how to illegally defraud the benefits system shouldn't be discussed here, but ensuring you're getting your entitlement is exactly what it’s about.

    We all know the benefits system is a mess – but that’s for the discussion time.

    Whatever you're political persuasion, we're all aware the benefits system is a mess. Whether it’s the malpayments of tax credits, benefit fraud, or simply the fact that sometimes it doesn't pay to work - everyone has their grumble.

    Yet to discuss the benefits system itself and issues around it, the appropriate place isn't here but the Discussion time Board and even there, please remember courtesy and not to make it personal about anyone. This site's prime purpose it to help people with their money and I will always act to protect that.

    Thanks for your co-operation
