Free online help with jobs and benefits

BetterOff Hyde is an online service which allows you to check your entitlement to benefits and fill out benefits and appeals forms on-line, saving them when you need to. There’s a job search tool and a journal that helps you to prove you’re looking for jobs to the job centre.

To carry out a benefit assessment go to BetterOff Hyde and choose the ‘Your money’ panel from the home page.

The site is very intuitive so you should be able to use it straight away. If you get stuck or if you want to learn how to use it before you start, take a look at these videos which use screen capture to show exactly how to use the site.
