It is important to claim all of the benefits to which you are entitled. Entitlement to benefits may vary over time depending on age and personal circumstances.
Some benefits are means-tested which means that they may not be payable if your income or savings are above a certain level. However some income and savings such as personal injury compensation held by a Court of Protection Deputy or within a Personal Injury Trust may be disregarded.
