At entitledto we’ve been busy developing some new products designed to support professionals who are working with people in financial need.

With the hot and sunny weather in most of the UK today heating costs might not be your top priority but if you are eligible for the Warm Homes Discount it could save you £135 during 2013/14 (it was £130 in 2012/2013).
At entitledto we provide over two million benefit calculations and our users are often looking to find out about benefits, whether they are eligible and how to claim. This blog summarises the key information in relation to claiming Housing Benefit and how to find out if you are eligible (and if so how to make a claim).
The government have set a limit on the total amount of benefit a household can receive. For working-age households, total household welfare payments will be limited to £500 per week for couple and lone parent households, and to £350 per week for single person households where no children are present.
The benefits cap is being phased in gradually across the country. It was introduced in Bromley, Croydon, Enfield and Haringey in April 2013 and is being introduced in other parts of Great Britain between 15th July and 30th September 2013.
