The information on this site applies to social security arrangements in Northern Ireland. The rules elsewhere, including England, Wales and Scotland, are different. The calculations are only valid for single people aged 18 or over, or couples where one person is 18 or over.
The Benefit Screening Tool calculates estimates and should not be treated as a definite indicator of what benefits you are entitled to.
The Benefit Screening Tool is not a substitute for professional advice from certified voluntary or statutory sector professionals, nor does it constitute legal advice. If the Tool indicates that you have entitlement you are not claiming, you can get help from organisations like Citizens Advice Bureaux, Advice NI members, the Social Security Agency and the Northern Ireland Housing Executive.
