What is the benefits calculator?
Our personalised benefits calculator can tell you if you’re potentially entitled to claim extra money, based on the information you provide – such as whether you’re single/in a couple, where you live or if you care for anyone. It’s easy to use, quick, free and all the details you provide are anonymous.
Please note the calculator covers England, Scotland and Wales.
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.
