I am posting on behalf of my sis who has had some bad news re the amount of income support she will be getting and any expected back-dated amount (ie, she will not be getting any back-dated amount and the amount of IS awarded was far lower than expected).
She is looking for work at the mo, but was also wondering if there were any benefits that she may be entitled to that she does not know about?
She is already claiming HB and as mentioned earlier IS. Obviously she would rather be working, but with 2 young children at school and nursery and being on very bad terms with her ex, childcare options are very limited and therefore jobs with the hours to suit are proving difficult to find.
Thanks for any advice re benefits or even budgeting tips

Does anyone know what other benefits my sister maybe entitled to?
