Benefit calculator

We are currently experiencing issues with our website search and we are working to resolve this as quickly as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

When we calculate your benefit we take into account the following -

  • how much money you and your partner have coming in each week
  • any saving and investments you and your partner have
  • who lives in your household and their circumstances
  • how much Council Tax you have to pay

Benefit is calculated comparing your income and household circumstances to an amount the government says you need to live on each week.

Use our benefits calculator to see how much Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction you might be abe to receive.

If either you or your partner are self employed or a student the calculator is  unable to give you an accurate estimate of benefit due to the type of income you receive.
