What benefits do I get?
Like anyone who is on a low income, apprentices may be eligible to get benefits from the government.
These are in place to help people who do not earn much and it is worth finding out what you may be entitled to.
There are a variety of different benefits available such as housing, council tax or low income allowances.
Additionally if apprentices have children they can probably claim child tax benefits and may be able to get help with childcare costs. Contact your local jobcentre to find out more.
You are also taking a big step in career development and advancing your knowledge within your required study and job.
