Income Maximisation

It is important that the individual looks at ways their income may be increased. It would be useful to contact the local advice centre and allow an adviser to look at the benefits systems to ensure all benefits entitlement is claimed. At the back of this pack is an income and expenditure sheet, it is useful to write down an account of all income coming into the house and all expenditure going out. If expenditure exceeds the income, are there any items that can be cut back on or maybe cut out altogether until finances improve. It would be beneficial to seek help from a trained money officer. At the back of this booklet is a list of independent advice centres that can give free, impartial and confidential information and advice.
