Use Our Benefits Calculator Now!

You may be eligible for financial assistance depending on your particular circumstances. The Benefits Calculator will help you check your entitlement if you are:


  • Unemployed and looking for work
  • Ill or have disabilities
  • In work and on a low income
  • Caring for someone
  • Bringing up children
  • Retired



Some groups of people are unable to use the calculator because special rules apply to their situation. If you fall into one of the following groups please give us a call on 0345 241 2885


  • Students
  • People under 18
  • People in residential care, a nursing home or hospital
  • Prisoners
  • People on strike
  • People who are not a British or Irish citizen

The calculator will be able to estimate some of the benefits you can receive. There are other benefits it will not be able to calculate, but it will be able to indicate your eligibility for them. You will also need to gather certain information before you fill in the calculator. Click here to learn more
