What benefits can you claim? Find out now!

We know this has been a difficult time for most, on the back of the pandemic and now the cost of living crisis. We wanted to provide you with a 'benefit' calculator, which gives you access to information about benefits you are entitled to claim.


This will give you an estimate of:


• The benefits you could get

• How much your benefit payments could be

• How your benefits will be affected if you start work or increase your hours

• How your benefits will be affected if your circumstances change - for example, if you have a child or move in with your partner


For information on income-related benefits, contribution-based benefits, Universal Credit, tax credits, Council Tax Reduction and Carer’s Allowance use:


• entitledto benefits calculator

• Turn2us benefits calculator

• Policy in Practice better off calculator


You’ll need accurate information about your:


• Savings

• Income, including your partner’s (from payslips, for example)

• Existing benefits and pensions (including anyone living with you)

• Outgoings (such as rent, mortgage, childcare payments)

• Council Tax bill


You cannot use the calculators if you’re under 18, and they will not give accurate results if you’re:


• A prisoner

• A student

• Not a British or Irish citizen

• on strike

• living outside the UK

• living permanently in residential care or a nursing home


We hope you find this helpful.
