What is the Benefits Calculator?

Based on the information you provide - such as whether you're single/in a couple, where you live, if you care for anyone - we tell you if you're potentially entitled to claim extra money.

The online calculator covers England, Scotland and Wales. It is free to use, and the details you provide are anonymous.

Why check?

Each year up to £3.5bn of Pension Credit and Housing Benefit goes unclaimed by older people. So, even if you think you're getting everything you are entitled to - it doesn't hurt to check.

Some benefits, like the Winter Fuel Payment, are entirely dependent on age - and not at all related to income. You could discover you may be eligible for Housing Benefit or Council Tax Support.

What do I do next?

Launch the calculator to see what you might be eligible for.
