Benefits Calculator

Benefits Calculator

Over 8 million UK households are missing £16 billion in benefits. Make sure you aren’t missing out on benefits you could be eligible for with our benefits calculator.

Our free benefits calculator can help you find out what benefits you may be entitled to. It only takes around 5-10 minutes to complete and any information you submit is anonymous, with no obligation to sign up to any benefits.

You will need information about your income, outgoings, living arrangements, legacy benefits and savings. Our free benefits calculator can also tell you what would happen to your benefits if your circumstances change.

How does our benefits calculator work?

Checking your eligibility for benefits can be a confusing, sometimes overwhelming task. But, with 8 million UK households missing £16 billion in benefits, it’s important you check, and then claim, what you are entitled to.

Our benefits calculator uses the information you provide, such as where you live, who you live with, whether you care for someone, your income and outgoings, to tell you if you are entitled to claim benefits and what you have to do to claim them.

Our free benefits calculator can also tell you how a change in your circumstances, such as a wage increase or decrease, could impact the benefits you claim, allowing you to plan ahead.

You can also download and keep your unique benefits report after completion.
