The welfare benefits system is very complex and we recommend getting a complete benefit check done to see what you may be eligible for. This will depend on your age, income and personal circumstances.
Your local council and/or Citizens Advice Bureau may employ welfare rights workers who can do this. You could also contact our Welfare Advice and Support Service.
Our factsheet, A guide to welfare benefits, gives an overview of the welfare benefits available to people who are ill and/or disabled. You can find this under Resources in our Living with M.E. section.
