After her husband Ken became seriously ill and she gave up her job to care for him, Helen came to Turn2us to find out what financial support was available for her family.

Helen found out that her husband was eligible for Pension Credit, and even though it was only 10p per week, as a so-called ‘passport benefit’, it meant they were able to receive support for interest on their mortgage repayment, which meant they could stay in their home.
