IncomeMax case studies

IncomeMax has extensive experience in financial services, so far

generating £30 million of extra income for almost 80,000 of their customers.


Thanks to their financial expertise, below are a few successful case studies showcasing the outstanding support they have offered some of their customers.

Case study one:

A customer explained to IncomeMax that she was no longer working due to several health conditions. 

She was already claiming Universal Credit, but was struggling to afford her rent, food and bills, and had started to fall behind with her payments. 

She had applied for a food parcel to be sent out to her, and luckily it was due to arrive the next morning.

IncomeMax completed a benefit check for her and discussed extra elements in her Universal Credit that she could apply for, as well as payments to help with her rent and Council Tax and local welfare schemes that may be able to help with energy, food and furniture.

She was very grateful that IncomeMax was there to support her.

Case study two:

A customer was financially struggling from unemployment due to the pandemic. 

She had no recourse to public funds, so was unable to access the benefits system. 

She had also mentioned that she had not eaten in days and had no money at all.

Her local food bank explained they were unable to help her as she had no recourse to public funds and they did not have enough food to help her due to high demand.

IncomeMax contacted her local welfare scheme and managed to put an application through to get her a food parcel delivered. 

They tried to contact her to arrange a delivery, but unfortunately, she was so weak and tired she missed the phone call. This meant that she “rejected” the help and was told she could not reapply for a few days.

After calling a range of different food charities who all explained they were unable to help, IncomeMax finally had a breakthrough with a local charity.

They explained that IncomeMax would have to fill out an application form for the customer and they would deliver food the same day, which proved to be successful.
