Benefit Guides for Adults
Are you currently receiving all the benefits that you are entitled to? Online benefits calculators may be useful in helping you to check which benefits you could receive. Some ask for a lot of personal information so take the time to review and answer these questions carefully so that you get accurate guidance.
Some benefits are means-tested while others are not. For means-tested benefits, you may be asked to provide information about a range of things, including savings, income, pension, childcare payments and any existing benefits that you (and your partner, where applicable) are already claiming. For disability benefits that are not means-tested, they will not look at your income or savings.
A useful online calculator can be found on the Turn2Us website. This will help you to identify which benefits you might be entitled to - https://benefits-calculator.turn2us.org.uk
