Our benefits calculator will help you find out what benefits you can claim.
If you are making a new claim, the easiest way to check whether you may be entitled to Housing Benefit is to use the online benefit calculator before completing the online form. If you are entitled to make a claim for Universal Credit there will be a link at the end of the online benefit calculator which you can use to go to the relevant website. In the limited situations where new claims for Housing Benefit can be made the benefits calculator will provide a link to the form.
