People from right around the UK find the Benefits Calculator invaluable.
“Am very impressed by this site. Without it I would not have known I was entitled to Housing Benefit. I had struggled for 2 years as a Lone Parent without Housing Benefit and thanks to you am now finding it easier to make ends meet. Thank you!!”
"Excellent, gives me confidence before applying. Thank You"
"I have always wanted to know my entitlements and have shied away from contacting the Revenue or DWP for fear of wasting their time. this was a simple way to put my mind at rest and I wish I had known about it when I was unpaid maternity leave a few year ago, it would have been a great help. I plan to use this site to check my elderly relatives are receiving their full entitlements. Thanks"
“This has been extremely helpful. Finding myself single with 3 children I was completely overwhelmed by the benefit system and what I could claim. This has been a lifeline. Thanks"
"Very useful - thank you. I was able to talk to HMRC with confidence about my entitlements - great website."
"Hope you don't mind, but I felt I needed to say 'Thank You'. I tried everywhere, online, telephone etc. for advice as to whether I would be entitled to Housing Benefit (inc. my local neighbourhood office) but to no avail. I was on the verge of giving up my 22 hour a week supervisors job when I received a call from the rent team of my HA questioning why the months rent payment was a little short!! I got a quite upset and explained that I was struggling financially. It was during this conversation that she informed me of your website. Needless to say I logged on right away and have discovered that I could be entitled to approx £42 a week for housing and council tax benefit! I am really pleased. I shall certainly be telling other people about your site. THANK YOU."
"I've just come across your brillian budget tool. It's very easy to use, made me think about all the expenses we have on a monthly basis (sometimes it's easy to forget things, but they all add up!) and I liked the way it breaks it down into a pie chart so you can see easily where you need to change things - great! You should try to publicise this on something like the Jeremy Vine show when he next does a slot on reducing outgoings/budgeting. You may be able to get a link uploaded to the BBC radio webpage. Thanks again."
