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 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 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.

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. 

We have trained advisors in over 150 areas who could help you identify the benefits you're entitled to and support you with your claim.
