Find out how much extra you could be entitled to.


How does it work?

Our benefits calculator can tell you if you're potentially entitled to claim extra money. The calculations are based on the information you provide – such as where you live, whether you're single or in a couple or if you care for someone.

Our calculator can give you an idea of which benefits you could claim and how much you could get, as well as how your benfits might be affected if your circumstances change – for example if you increase your working hours or move in with your partner.

Before you start, you'll need to have information about:

  • your savings
  • your income, including your partner's if you have one
  • any benefits or pensions you're already claiming, including anyone you're living with.

What benefits will it check?

Our calculator covers England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It provides an estimate for many benefits, but for others it can only indicate if you might be eligible. Click on the sections below to find out more.
