Hi, I'm Lea and I have reviewed your query.

What sort of financial support are you looking for?

Please bear in mind this is an email service and not a live chat so responses may not be instantaneous. I am not available for calls, but in all cases it is very likely you can be helped online.

I don't know, but she is struggling and I am frequently giving her money

It's unlikely that your daughter will be entitled to any benefits as she has an average income and owns her own home, but you can certainly check at the link I will provide to see if there is any other benefits that she may be entitled to. See here: https://benefits-calculator.turn2us.org.uk/AboutYou

The calculator will allow her to enter her exact details, which means that the information it gives will be accurate to her specific circumstances.

As she is 60, there may be some benefits available for older people that she may be entitled to. See here for more information: https://www.turn2us.org.uk/Your-Situation/An-older-person

To be fair, if your daughter is struggling a lot on her income, it may be that she has debts, or high bills, that she needs help budgeting with. She can get help with debt management here: https://www.moneyadviceservice.org.uk/en/categories/taking-control-of-debt
