Benefits calculators

There are a number of free calculators that can help you check which benefits you may be eligible for.

An benefits calculator can help make sure you get all the help you are entitled to. Using one of these calculators can help you find out:

  • what benefits you may be entitled to
  • how to claim them
  • how your benefits will be affected if you start work or work more hours.


The following calculators are free to use:





What you’ll need

Before you use one of these calculators, you will need some basic information about your income and outgoings. You should make sure this information is as accurate as possible:

  • savings 

  • income, including your partner’s (e.g. from payslips)
  • existing benefits and pensions (including about anyone living with you) 

  • outgoings (e.g. rent, mortgage, electricity bills) 

  • Council tax bill.
