To work out your potential entitlement we need to know whether you are single or in a couple
, how many children under 20 you have (if in doubt see when to include children
) and whether you share your home with anyone else such as a relative or lodger.
If you are a full-time student, in hospital/ residential care, a prisoner or on strike, living abroad or not a British or Irish citizen our estimate may not be correct. If you fall into one of these categories please see groups not included in the calculator
If you are returning to a calculation you started earlier please retrieve your saved calculation.
