Benefits calculator

Did you realise that you’re entitled to payments from the government to help deal with the extra costs of your child’s cancer? Our calculator makes it easy to find out how much you might be able to get.

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 Turn2Us Benefits Calculator lets you check which means-tested benefits you may be entitled to, including tax credits. Means-tested benefits are ones which are affected by your income, savings and any property you own. 

The calculator will tell you:

  • Which benefits and Tax Credits you may be entitled to
  • How  much you might get
  • How to apply for these.

If you get stuck on any of the questions click the ‘?’ icon next to it.  The more accurately you answer the questions, the more likely you are to get a correct result.  We ask you for your postcode on the Benefits Calculator. This is so that we can complete a benefits calculation based on your local authority and provide you benefits you are entitled to. Your postcode will not be used for any other purpose, nor will it be shared with any third parties without your consent.

It will be stored securely in our database for up to 6 months so that you may retrieve or change your benefits calculation during that time. We also ask for details such as Date of Birth and Employment status. This is solely for the purpose of calculating your benefit entitlement; the data which you enter is not used for any other purpose.
