Free online help with jobs and benefits
BetterOff Hyde is an online tool that allows you to check your entitlement to benefits including Universal Credit, Employment Support Allowance and Personal Independence Payments.
You can complete benefit applications and appeal forms and the service can even work out how much better off you could be by calculating your entitlements. There’s a job search tool and a journal that helps you prove to the job centre that you’re actively looking for employment. There's also and advice and help section if you have questions about looking for work or money and debt.
To carry out a benefit assessment go to BetterOff Hyde and choose the ‘Your money’ panel from the home page.
See also our money and debt advice booklet (PDF, 2.63MB) for tenants.
