Maximising Income

Maximising the client’s income is an essential part of the debt advice process. This should always include offering to check the client’s benefit entitlement, but there may be other ways of increasing the money they have coming in to the household as well as reducing their outgoings. At the initial debt advice interview stage, it is good practice to look for some ‘quick wins’ which can be considered with every client.

The below Guidance will provide advisers with tools and resources that are available to clients across a range of circumstances.
