Debt Advice

The Legion’s Benefits and Money Advice team can support you with your finances, including support on managing debt - all completely confidential and free of charge.

If you're a Legion beneficiary and you're having trouble with debt we can help you with advice and guidance.

Debt can overwhelm anyone and puts untold pressure on individuals and households. If your debts are mounting up and you're worried about how to pay them, the Legion's Benefits and Money Advice service can help. 

Our advisers offer free, impartial and confidential advice that will help you to manage and in some cases even get the debt written off.

Problem debt can affect anyone, so it is important that people seek advice as early as possible and make sure they are receiving all the help they are entitled to.
