Benefit & Budgeting CalculatorWe’ve partnered with Policy in Practice to offer this benefit calculator. Through just a few simple steps you can see how much benefit you are eligible for and how much better off you might be in work. You can also see how changes in your household budget can affect your income.
The calculator is suitable for most people permanently living in the UK. It is not meant for people in hospital, residential care, on strike or in prison – if this applies to you, please see our contact page and get in touch with us directly. Calculations should be treated as a helpful estimate, as it will only be as accurate as the information entered.
You’ll find it easier and quicker to complete the calculator if you have the following bits of information to hand:
- letters you’ve had from the DWP
- bank statements
- wage slips
If you are an existing client and know your reference number, you can include that too.
