Hospital and benefits - Financial help

When you or a member of your family go into or come out of hospital, the welfare benefits you get may change. What will happen to your benefits depends on the type of benefit you get.

A stay in hospital can also affect the benefits your partner or carer gets.

Financial help

If you cannot manage financially with the money you have when you are in hospital or when you come out of hospital, seek advice from a benefits adviser.  You can find a local one using the Turn2us Find an Adviser tool.

You might also be eligible for a grant or other help from a charitable fund. You can search for grants from charitable funds using the Turn2us Grants Search.
