You might be able to get Income Support if you’re on a low income. It’s particularly common for carers, parents or people looking after young children to get it. Other people can be eligible, so it’s worth checking even if you’re not in one of these groups.
How many hours you work and how much you earn also affects whether you can claim Income Support.
You don’t need a permanent address to claim, so it doesn’t matter if you’re staying in temporary accommodation or sleeping rough.
You can’t claim Income Support if you’re already getting Jobseeker’s Allowance or Employment and Support Allowance.
