What benefits am I entitled to?

Do you know what benefits you are entitled to? Find out what you could be owed - quickly and easily - with our personalised benefits calculator.

Why bother to 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 that you may be eligible for Housing Benefit or Council Tax Reduction .

What do I do next?

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

How to claim

Your calculation has shown that you're missing out on money - so what next?

Head to the individual benefit page within our Claiming Benefits section and it will explain how to claim. Unfortunately, each benefit has a different method. 

Think you're owed more?

If you think a decision made about your benefits is wrong, you can ask the office that made the decision to explain or reconsider it.
