See how much benefit you are entitled to

Please use our free better off calculator to see how much benefit you are entitled to. You can also use the calculator to see how much better off you might be in work or if you change the number of hours you work.

Before you start the calculation you will need to have the following information available:

  • How much rent you are charged each week/month. If you are unsure, check your tenancy agreement or contact your landlord.
  • How much your Council Tax charge is per year. If you do not know this, please refer to your Council Tax bill, or how much is my Council Tax.
  • Income and capital details, for you, your partner and anyone else who lives with you.
