If you’re looking to help for a benefit check, please use the online calculator below.
Aberdeen City Council’s benefit calculator is easy to use and calculates, based on the personal information you provide, what benefits you may be entitled to. It is completely anonymous and only you get to see the calculation.
Completing it should take no more than ten minutes and at the end you can download a copy of your calculation or email it to yourself.
Please note this calculator is not suitable for those who are 16/17 years old and living with parents, in hospital, residential care, prison, living abroad or full-time education. Please contact us directly for a benefit check.
Why should I check my benefit entitlement?
Each year across the UK, billions of pounds in benefits go unclaimed. This is often money that people have earned and could be used to help them. Unfortunately, no-one tells you when you are entitled to a benefit unless you ask them, so the responsibility to check is yours.
Fortunately, the Inverclyde Benefit calculator does this for you, and you can also chat with an online adviser if you need any further information or want to ask a question.
When should I check my benefit entitlement?
It’s a good idea to check you benefit entitlement anytime your circumstances change, such as when you move home, become unemployed or change jobs. You should also check if you or any of your family experience a long-term change in their heath or have any disabilities.
It’s also important to check if your benefits change, as your entitlement to other benefits may also have changed.
