Benefit Calculator for older people (age 60 or over).

Rights Advice Scotland and the Welfare Rights sections in, Angus Council and Glasgow City Council have worked in partnership to produce this calculator. It will calculate entitlement to Pension Credit, Housing Benefit, and Council Tax Benefit for people aged 60 or over. The calculator will take you through a series of questions about your family composition and household income. To keep the calculator simple it will not calculate Housing Benefit or Council Tax Benefit if there are children or other non dependent adults living in the house.

Please use the buttons at the top left of the calculator to move between the different sections.
At the end of the questions use the "Results" button to calculate your entitlement to Pension Credit. Additionally if you wish it will also calculate entitlement to Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit. Please note that the option to calculate Council Tax Benefit will only work for people living in Scotland.

To protect your privacy the calculator will not ask for any details that can identify you and at no time does any information leave your computer. Your details will not be stored on your computer and will be automatically deleted when you close the calculator.
