Benefit calculators

topper Community member Posts: 29 Connected
Hi   I’ve used a few online Benefit Calculators, while entering the same details I’m both entitled to and turn to us I get a different amount on each? Does anyone else get the same issue? Before anyone asks, I’ve looked at the weekly, and monthly amounts on both sites and both are saying different.

    I always find entitledto to be the most accurate. It does depend on the information you put into them, if you put in different information then you will get different outcomes.

    Whether you're better off claiming UC will depend on your circumstances, some are and some aren't.
    Is it Income Related ESA you're claiming? If so does it include the Severe disability premium?
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
