  2. Champion, more advice for spongers. (not that all catagories here are spongers)

    At least make them try and work them out for themselves.
  3. Not sure where you're coming from there. However, if you\ll NEVER need help and never claim benefits (just like your "spongers@)then that's fine.

    You seem to be the only respondent.
  4. I'm curious as to why this is a subject for ARRSE, unless it is to insigate relies along the lines of The_Seagull's.

    A lot of retired service personnel don't know what benefits they are entitled to claim.

    Some of them think that benefits are 'charity' and they don't want them, even though they live in abject poverty, and are entitled because of years of contributions. Even Council Tax Benefit!

    I'd be happy for this information to be publicised for them.
  6. Let me help you there....arrse members and even serving personnel are members of society.
