People on benefits could also also apply for things like reduced travel, free broadband and Healthy Start Vouchers.
Around one million households are eligible to receive free broadband installation from Openreach, which could save a low income household £92 a year.
Healthy Start Vouchers are available to people on Universal Credit and Tax Credits who have responsibility for young children.
It’s not just people on Universal Credit, PIP and Pension Credit claimants who could be eligible for extra help and people should speak to the DWP if they think they aren’t receiving everything they are entitled to.
