The government are phasing out tax credits and replacing them with Universal Credit, which is less generous for most working people. Use our calculator to find out if you can still get tax credits and the last date to claim in your area.
Say yes if you are married or live with someone as a couple, including civil partners or people you live with as if you are civil partners:
Include any children under 16, and any children aged 16 to 19 years old who you still get Child Benefit for, unless you are claiming Universal Credit and have a 19 year old, in which case please read the help text for this question before answering. If you share custody, you should only include children if you receive Child Benefit for them. If you are pregnant or adopting and include the expected child we will calculate your benefits assuming the child is born/adopted. Do not include an expected child if you want to find out your current entitlements.
We use this information to work out how many bedrooms you need so please count couples as 1 person. Because you have other people living with you your benefits may be affected by non-dependant deductions not covered by this calculator. We recommend you our comprehensive benefits calculator for an accurate result.
If you are not a British or Irish national you may not be entitled to benefits in the UK, but please see our advice pages on benefits if you are not a British or Irish national.
If you read these advice pages and decide that you are fully entitled to benefits, e.g. because you are an EEA ‘worker’ or you have a ‘permanent right to reside’, then proceed through the calculator as if you were a British or Irish national.
Important: If you’re a full time student, in hospital, a prisoner, on strike or living abroad we cannot guarantee the accuracy of our estimates.
As the calculator does not calculate entitlements accurately for these groups we recommend seeing an adviser to understand your personal circumstances.
