To work out what you’re entitled to we need to know:
We base our benefit estimates on the information you give us and aim to give you an idea of your potential entitlement. The calculator works out your entitlement to all benefits, including Universal Credit.
From 27th January 2016 parts of Hounslow will be included in the rollout of the Universal Credit digital service. The calculator will tell you if you live in affected postcode and work out your entitlement to Universal Credit. Whatever your circumstances, if you are making a new claim for benefit, or if your circumstances change, after 27th January 2016 you will have to claim Universal Credit instead of existing benefits if you live in an affected postcode.
If you’re a full time student, in hospital, a prisoner, on strike, living abroad or not a UK/Irish citizen our estimates might not be correct. Please read groups not included in the checker for more information on this.
Benefit and tax credit rates change every April. Please select which rates you would like us to use. More information is also available on the date rate changes take effect.
