Benefits Calculator

Get an estimate of what benefits (eg Income Support or Jobseeker’s Allowance) and tax credits you could get, and find out about claiming specific benefits. You can also find out how your benefits would be affected by a change in circumstances (eg if you find work).

Use this service to get benefits calculations for you, your family or someone else. You do not have to give your personal information. 

To answer the questions and make sure your estimate is accurate, you’ll need to provide information about your:

  • savings;
  • earnings (eg from payslips);
  • existing benefits and pensions;
  • outgoings (eg rent, mortgage, childcare payments); and
  • local housing allowance limit (if you rent your property from a private landlord).
