PiT brings us news of a new benefits calculator that could be of benefit to many.
The new Turn2us Benefits Calculator will only ask questions relevant to an individual’s particular circumstances and will:
- Calculate entitlement to all UK means tested benefits
- Calculate future benefits entitlement as personal circumstances change
- Signpost to non-means tested benefits and other concessions
- Estimate expected Universal Credit entitlement and how it compares to current benefit rates
- Show you at each step of the calculation interim results so you can see potential entitlement as you progress
- Show a detailed results page, with a summary of the information entered, the benefits identified, estimates for weekly and annual entitlement and guidance on how to claim
- Give you the ability to retrieve, complete and alter calculations at a later date
- Display on mobile devices, making it easier to carry out benefits checks out of the office
- Link to our Grants Search tool to help you find other sources of financial support.
