Benefits calculators

If you are not sure if you qualify for any benefits you can use an independent benefits calculator to check.

Use an independent benefits calculator to find out:

  • what benefits you could get
  • how to claim
  • how your benefits will be affected if you start work

These services are all anonymous and free to use.
