Use our online benefits calculator to check if you may be able to get help with your rent and Council Tax - or to see how a change in your circumstances might affect what you get.
The calculator gives an estimate based on the information you give. It doesn't ask for your name or address or other personal information.
It's easy to use. But before you start you will need:
- Details of your income - such as wages, benefits and pensions
- Details of your savings
- Your weekly or monthly rent and Local Housing Allowance rate
- The amount of Council Tax you have to pay this year.
The calculation is an estimate based on the information you give. So the amount may change when you apply for benefits.
Make a claim by completing a form - contact us or download a claim form.
There are other free to use, anonymous and independent benefits calculators available. Find out what other benefits you could get and how to claim at GOV.UK.
