Help to work out my benefit entitlement
The below benefit calculators can help you to get an estimate of the Housing Benefit that you maybe entitled to. It should be noted that there are some types of tenant e.g. students who will need to get more specialist advice. Please note that the figures produced are only estimates and that you will only find out your actual entitlements when you make a claim.

From 1st April 2013, many social housing tenants living in properties deemed too large for them will have their Housing Benefit payments cut. Use our 'bedroom tax' calculator to see if you will be affected.
