Can I keep my own money if I apply for financial assistance?
If you are earning your own money, you need less money from the job centre or social benefits office. Your income is taken into account. Your assets are only counted if they are worth more than a certain defined amount. That means you don’t have to use up all your savings. You can keep your own money and other assets up to a certain amount. Your assets in Ukraine are not counted if you can’t access them.
