Benefits entitlement calculator
Many people in the UK don’t claim the benefits they are entitled to with nearly £16billion going unclaimed each year. Over £5billion of that is by older people.
At Anchor we want to help you to put more money in your pocket including assisting you to access your benefit entitlement.
There is a range of financial support available to help you with your housing costs and the expenses of daily living. Other support, such as non means tested disability benefits, are available to aid in the additional costs of long-term ill health.
Anchor has a benefits calculator you can use to find out the benefits you may be entitled to. Please be aware this is only a guide and MoneyWise would be happy to provide tailored advice based on your circumstances. You can contact us on 0800 023 4477 or email [email protected].
Benefits are calculated based on the age, circumstances, income and capital for you if you live alone or you and your partner.
You will need to have the following information to hand before starting the calculation:
- Bank statements/ accounts which accurately show all income, pensions and savings for you and/or partner
- The amount of your housing costs such as rent and/or service charges
- Council Tax bill showing your annual charge
- Details of any benefits you currently receive
BeWise offers a range of services to help you live independently and assist you to claim your full entitlement.
In addition, please see our financial management page which provides a range of information on managing your finances and dealing with debt.
