How BenefitMe works

Everything you tell us is private. We don't save your information. 

This tool checks your information against the rules to see what you‘re eligible for. It’s not connected to Work and Income or any other government organisation.

What benefits can we calculate?

BenefitMe currently only checks:

  • Jobseeker Support
  • Sole Parent Support
  • Disability Allowance
  • Accommodation Supplement

We will continue to add more benefits and grants to this service over time.
