Find out what benefits you might be entitled to
The government's Benefit Cap limits the total amount of benefit that most people aged 16 to 64 can get for their day to day and housing cost needs.
You may not be affected by the cap if you, your partner, or any children living with you aged under 18 get:
- Carer’s Allowance (or the underlying entitlement to Carer's Allowance or a Carer Element within Universal Credit)
- Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
- Employment and Support Allowance (if you get the Support Component)
- Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
- …and other payments, allowances, and benefits
Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) – benefit calculator
If you are aged 16 - 64 you can get an estimate of the total amount of benefits you could get by using a benefit calculator.
To use a calculator, you need to have information ready about the amounts of any benefits you already get and the number of people in your household including:
- your partner
- any children that you’re responsible for and who live with you.
Find out more on the DWP's benefit calculator page (external link).

It is best to discuss your individual case and circumstance with a benefits advisor.
