Debt and benefits advice

Getting to grips with the benefits system isn’t easy. It can be hard to know what financial support you’re entitled to. It can be time-consuming making sure you’re receiving benefits you’re entitled to.

Benefits advice

Getting to grips with money matters can be hard - that's why we offer debt and benefits advice. If you’re not sure which state benefits, you’re eligible for and worry that you’re missing out on assistance that could improve life for you and your family, get in touch with us. Our helpline staff are experienced in guiding people through what often feels like a benefits maze and can help you make sense of the system.

We understand that benefits can be sensitive to discuss but many of us need a bit of financial support at times, and that’s why the system exists. If you’re looking for advice that could prevent you from losing out on assistance you’re entitled to and that would make a difference to your quality of life – we’re here to offer it.

Debt advice

We may also be able to help if you have debts that you’re finding it hard to keep on top of.  Most of us have loans and repayments and there are times when circumstances change, things spiral, and we find ourselves unable or struggling to pay our debts.

If that’s the situation you’re in, we can support you – from short-term grants, to expertise and guidance through our partnership with leading debt advice charity Step Change. Debts can be daunting, but they don’t have to be insurmountable. If you’re in a place where it feels as if they are – contact us. Together we’ll find a way to manage them.

Eligibility

If you or your partner has ever been an IET member and have less than £16,000 in savings, we can help. Get in touch with us and together we’ll find the right solutions. If you’ve never been an IET member, don’t worry, get in touch with us and we’ll try and signpost you to the right place.
