Tax credit customers in Dorset are being urged by HM Revenue and Customs to renew their claims before the looming deadline on 31st July.
46,000 people in the county receive tax credits and last year around 650,000 claimants nationwide had their money stopped because they failed to renew before the deadline.
Nick Lodge, HMRC's Director General of Benefits and Credits, told Wessex FM:
"People in Dorset should check their details and renew early to make sure they get the right money. Don't leave it - people who don't renew on time risk losing their payments".
This year, as well as being able to renew by post and by phone, claimants are also able to renew online.
