Could you be entitled to a benefit?
Have you ever wondered whether you may be eligible to claim a benefit but are unsure where to start? The benefits system can feel quite overwhelming and difficult to navigate so it’s a good idea to explore initially what you may or may not be eligible for.
Although using a benefits calculator can be helpful as an indicator of what you may or may not be entitled to, we would recommend liaising with a professional benefits specialist, such as one of our advisers, for the most accurate assessment. To find out more, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Turn2us benefits calculator
This Benefits Calculator is supplied by Turn2us, a national charity that helps people in financial hardship to gain access to welfare benefits, charitable grants and support services. The help text, updated by Turn2us, will guide you through each stage of the calculation.
Our Carers UK Helpline advisers are more than happy to lend a hand in this area. Just email email@example.com requesting a benefits check and outlining your situation. An adviser is likely to come back with some questions to understand your particular circumstances, so that they can provide you with more tailored guidance.
You could also find out whether you may be able to apply for a grant. See our Grants and schemes page for more details.
