Check you qualify for Income Support before you complete an application form
This calculator will be able to advise if you can claim Income Support. It is not an application form.
After you've entered your details, the next page will ask for an email address.
Enter your email address to find out if you qualify or not. If you do qualify, you'll get a link to an application form.
You will not receive an application form if you do not provide your email address.
If you will be making any financial decisions based on whether or not you may be able to claim, you can contact Income Support for more detail.
The information provided on this form will not be used to assist us with your Income Support application. Your details are not stored anywhere. The purpose of asking the below questions is to establish if you may be entitled to apply for Income Support.
How to use the calculator
If you are under 25, some parts of this calculator may not apply to you. The calculator cannot estimate extra payments you would get if you have a long-term illness or disability. If either of these apply to you contact us for more information.
Completing the calculator will take around 10 minutes:
- enter all numbers as digits, not words, for example 1, 2, 3 not one, two, three
- you must accurately complete every field that is relevant to you
- the amount we can pay towards your accommodation will be restricted to the cost and size of an appropriate property for your household
this calculator can't be used if you live in a house share, flat share, care home or if you've been assessed by a social worker as needing formal care. If any of these apply, contact us
