Free budgeting advice at Warrington Job Centre

THOSE claiming universal credit are being urged to take advantage of free budgeting advice.

Zoe Ruson, from Jobcentre Plus in Warrington, wants claimants to get in touch with the council, which is working with them along with the Money Advice Service to give free and impartial advice on the benefit changes.

People claiming credit will now be paid monthly instead of weekly or fortnightly.

Ms Ruson said: “With Universal Credit benefit payments are paid directly into people’s bank accounts, and that’s why we’ve teamed up with the Money Advice Service to offer this free budgeting advice.

“Many people in Warrington will be finding themselves responsible for a monthly budget for the very first time, which is a big change if you’re used to getting your money every two weeks. It can seem daunting, but there is lots of free help available.”

Anyone interested in free budgeting advice should contact their Jobcentre Plus work coach.
