You can carry out your own benefit entitlement check by following the information in the next link: 

Please note that the results will be for indication purposes only. 

You will see there are 2 possible calculators to use, Turn2us and EntitledTo, to help you calculate if you are entitled to any benefits. 

If you are currently in receipt of any benefit support it is important that you use a calculator to check if you are better off than you would be if making a new claim for universal credit. Once a new claim is made your current benefits will cease and cannot be reinstated. If you need support to complete a “what if” calculation please contact us. 

Should you need increased support to complete a benefits calculator, Turn2Us run a helpline to give support and information with means tested benefits to people who find it hard going online. 

The helpline can support you over the phone by completing online tools on your behalf. They then post, email or text you your result.  

Helpline Details: 0808 802 2000, 9am – 5pm Mondays-Fridays. 

All calls are free from a UK landline and from most mobiles. If you are calling from a mobile, please check with your network provider. You can also email Turn2us at:
