Top up your income, save on your outgoings

Our benefits calculator will help you determine your eligibility for Pension Credit and a range of council tax reductions. These can often be claimed regardless of your financial situation, so it’s always worth checking whether they’re right for you.

Is the calculator right for me?

Whether you’re early in your care journey or are already receiving support, our assessment helps you understand the benefits suited to your situation. It will provide accurate results provided you’re older than 65 and not currently living with someone other than your partner.

What information do we need?

Our benefits calculator will ask you questions about your needs, as well as some basic financial information. Together, this helps us understand which benefits you’re most likely eligible for. Currently, this will let you know about Pension Credits and a range of reductions to council tax.

How is my data used?

It’s important to us that your data is treated with respect. The information you provide will only be used to calculate your eligibility results and to provide you with assistance in your funding journey. For more information refer to our Privacy Policy.

Does it work for all UK nations?

Currently, our benefits calculator provides you with guidance across all local authorities within England. Unfortunately, at this time, we can’t guarantee the results will be suited to those living in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.
