The DWP has just published some astonishing figures revealing the level of welfare benefits which are available but not claimed. They have calculated that there are benefits worth £14 – 15 billion a year to which people are entitled but the benefits are not claimed.
Various reasons are given for not claiming benefits:
There are countless media reports of the size of the welfare budget, with claimants described as scroungers. These figures show that there are an alarmingly large number of people who are struggling on very little money and who are not receiving the help that they are entitled to.
