Many questions we are asked can be answered by using our calculator. For example:
If I take a part time job will it affect my housing benefits?
My child has left home so I have stopped getting child benefit and child tax credit. Am I entitled to anything else?
Will I be entitled to working tax credit if I drop my hours at work after having my second child?
Enter your current details into the calculator to find out what you may be entitled to now and if your circumstances are changing do another calculation to see if the amounts have changed.
If you have tried the tool and need further advice you can get more information about your entitlement to benefits and tax credits from your local Citizen’s Advice Bureaux and from a range of voluntary and statutory organisations.
