Benefits checker. What can you claim?

Every year, people in the UK are missing out on benefits and tax credits worth more than £10 billion. To make sure you’re claiming all the benefits you’re entitled to, use our free benefits checker.

This will quickly and easily identify any benefits you can claim to help increase your income and improve your situation.

Benefits are usually available if:

  • You're out of work
  • You've got children
  • You have a low income
  • You're ill or disabled

If you’re struggling financially it’s important to make sure you’re getting all the income you’re entitled to. Why not use our completely free benefits checker to find out if you’re entitled to any extra benefits.

The extra benefits you might be able to claim could make a big difference to your situation and the debt solutions we can offer you. If you’re already a StepChange client please contact us if your benefit income changes.

Tip: Grab any documents you might need before starting a check, like pay slips, bank statements and bills. If you don't have everything you need right now you can save your check and come back to it later.
