Are you earning less than £60,000?

If so, you could be entitled to certain benefits.

Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis has revealed that approximately £19 billion worth of benefits are going unclaimed every year and advised Brits to see if they qualify for credits.

Schemes people could be eligible for such government schemes include: Universal Credit, Council Tax Support, Carer's Allowance, Pension Credit, Child benefit, Housing Benefit, and Water and Broadband Social tariffs.

In his latest Money Saving Expert newsletter, he wrote: "We've long urged you to check to make sure you get all the benefits you're entitled to, knowing millions were due a share of billions.
