Eddy Graham and Sally West were the experts on Monday
BBC Radio 4's Money Box Live was broadcast on Monday, 2 October, 2006 at 1502 BST.
Paul Lewis took your benefit questions and put them to a panel of expert guests.
Over one million people do not claim the Pension Credit they are due and millions of pounds of other benefits remain unclaimed each year.
Are you eligible for help with your council tax or housing costs?
Have you applied for tax credits?
What assistance is available if you are disabled or a carer?
And where do your start if you have lost your job?
Our panel of experts were here to give advice.
Paul Lewis was joined by:
Sally West, Age Concern
