Benefit calculators: what benefits can you get

This advice applies to England

You can check if you can get benefits at your nearest Citizens Advice

Depending on your situation, you can also use the Turn2us,  Entitledto and Policy in Practice benefit calculators to check which benefits you can get. 

You’ll need information about savings, income, pension, childcare payments and any existing benefits (for you and your partner).

Turn2Us and Entitledto benefits calculators

The Turn2Us and Entitledto calculators won't work if you're under 18 and you won't get an accurate and detailed calculation if you're:

  • a student
  • not a British or Irish citizen
  • on strike
  • living outside the UK
  • living permanently in residential care or a nursing home
  • a prisoner

Policy in Practice benefits calculator

The Policy in Practice calculator does give accurate calculations for all ages and if you're:

  • a student
  • not a British or Irish citizen
  • living outside the UK
  • living permanently in residential care or a nursing home
  • a prisoner

If you're not a British, Irish or EEA citizen

You can use the Support for migrant families tool if you want to find out what benefits and other help you can get and:

  • you're responsible for children under 18
  • your visa says "no recourse to public funds" or you're subject to immigration control

Your results will be more accurate if you know your immigration status.
