Before you call:
Check if your question can be answered by any of our online information. This information – available on a range of subjects and regularly checked and updated by advice professionals – might give you the answer you need more quickly. Demand for the helpline is high and so callers often have to wait to speak to an adviser – the average waiting time is around 20 minutes.
Bear in mind that the busiest times of the day tend to be morning, so sometimes calling in the afternoon can help.
