Our Benefits Calculator gives you an instant estimate of the help you may get with your rent or Council Tax. If you haven't claimed Universal Credit, Tax Credits or Pension Credits, the calculator can also tell you how much help you may get from these payments. These calculations are only an estimate based on the information you supply.
Please call our Benefits team on 01329 824646 to make an appointment.
If you would prefer to make your claim over the phone, please call our Benefits team on 01329 824646.

In each of the above cases, your claim can only be paid once all of the information that is requested of you is received. Any delay in submitting the necessary information may hold up the assessment process.
