Your benefits

Millions of people in the UK are missing out on the benefits they are entitled to.

Life costs more for families raising a disabled child, so it’s always worth knowing how to claim the benefits you might be entitled to.

What is a benefits calculator?

You can use a benefits calculator to find out which benefits you may be entitled to claim. You’ll need to fill in the calculator (it’s very similar to an online form) and it will let you know what benefits you might be entitled 

to claim, and the next steps you can take.

It takes around 10 minutes to fill in the benefits calculator. Before you start the calculation, there is some information it would be helpful to have to hand:

  • Your current benefits information
  • Your recent bank statements
  • Information about your housing costs (this would be your rent or mortgage payments, regular bills and council tax band)
  • If you have a partner who lives with you, we will need to know answers for them too

Watch our video below on how you can complete a benefit calculation.

This benefit calculator is supplied by Turn2us.
