There are a range of benefits that people can apply for to help in different circumstances. Some benefits are administered by local authorities and some are administered by central government.
Use an independent benefits calculator to find out:
- what benefits you could get
- how to claim
- how your benefits will be affected if you start work.
They are anonymous and free to use.
To find out what you may be entitled to, use one of the benefits calculators on the GOV.UK website.
