How much benefit you will be paid

Work out your benefit amount

Online benefits calculators give an estimate of how much benefit you may be able to claim.

Housing benefit and council tax support estimates

You can use the benefits calculator on our My Account services to get a personal housing benefit and council tax support estimate before you make a claim.

Login to My Account to use the calculator. You can create an account if you don't already have one.

My Account - benefits

We will not be able to tell you the exact amount you may be paid until we have received your benefit claim and have fully assessed it.

Other benefit estimates

Go to GOV.UK: benefits calculator to find out what benefits you could get from the government, how to claim them, and how your benefits will be affected if you start work.

GOV.UK covers a wide range of benefits but Thurrock Council can help only with housing benefit and council tax support.

After your housing benefit or council tax support claim

After your claim has been assessed, if you're entitled to housing benefit or council tax support you can use our My Account service to check the exact amount you'll be paid.

It will also show you when you will be paid and how your benefit was worked out. You can also use it to tell us when there are changes to your circumstances.
