Managing cost of living expenses can be a challenging task for many people. People on the lowest incomes are often eligible for benefits and pensions, but did you know that there is still a great deal of advice and help available for people who may be ineligible?

The ACT Government Assistance Savings Finder aims to make it easy for people to find out what assistance and advice may be available by bringing together information from across the ACT and Australian governments and some community organisations in the ACT.
