Getting support

If you’re stressing out about money, you may not feel you have the head space to work your way through a benefits calculator. However, if you can, it’s worth taking the time to see what you might be entitled to. And remember, if you find it confusing you can always contact the Money Talk Team for free, confidential advice over the phone, in person or via their virtual assistant.

Using the entitledto benefits calculator

The entitledto benefits calculator will help you find out if you’re eligible for benefits from both the UK and Scottish Governments. If you create an account, you can save your information and come back to it later, which is great if you don’t have time to do it all at once, or don’t have all the information you need to hand.

Before you start it’s a good idea to read entitledto’s tips for using the benefits calculator first, and to gather as much information together as you can. The more details you can provide about your income, outgoings and any benefits you’re already claiming, the more accurate the results of the calculator will be. But even if you’re not sure about some details, the calculator can still give you an idea of what you may be eligible for.
