Am I entitled to claim benefits?

The Government website has a useful tool that allows you to check if you are eligible for benefits and financial support.

There are also some independent, free and anonymous benefits calculators that help you to check what you could be entitled to.

You will need information about your household income, saving and outgoings to use these calculators.
