I don’t know what benefits there are available to me

Why don’t you try? : How to find out what benefits are available to me

Use an independent benefits calculator to find out:
* what benefits you could get
* how to claim
* how your benefits will be affected if you start work.

These are free to use, anonymous, and have replaced the Benefits Adviser service.
Use one of the following:

Policy in Practice – for information on income-related benefits, tax credits, contribution-based benefits, Council Tax Reduction, Carer’s Allowance, Universal Credit, how these are calculated and how your benefits will be affected if you start work or change your working hours

Entitledto – for information on income-related benefits, tax credits, contribution-based benefits, Council Tax Reduction, Carer’s Allowance, Universal Credit and how your benefits will be affected if you start work

Turn2us – for information on income-related benefits, tax credits, Council Tax Reduction, Carer’s Allowance, Universal Credit and how your benefits will be affected if you start work or change your working hours
