|If you are wanting to find out what help is available from benefits if you are affected by the cost of living crisis please read our Cost of living support help page.|
Many questions we are asked can be answered by using our calculator. For example:
If I take a part time job will it affect my benefits?
My child has left home so I have stopped getting child benefit. Am I entitled to anything else?
Will I be entitled to anything if I drop my hours at work after having my second child?
Enter your current details into the calculator to find out what you may be entitled to now and if your circumstances are changing do another calculation to see if the amounts have changed.
If you have tried the tool and need further advice you can get more information about your entitlement to benefits from a range of voluntary and statutory organisations.
