New GOV.UK checker for benefits and financial support

GOV.UK has launched a question and answer tool to help people find out what benefits and financial support they might be eligible for. This has been developed quickly by Government Digital Service (GDS) after a request from Number 10, working closely with DWP and other departments.

 

People will answer up to 10 questions to find out what support is available. The results page will show a number of different things they might be eligible for, with links to more information.

 

This first version of the checker includes a selection of benefits and other sources of financial support. A wider range of support from across central government, local government and the NHS will be included in another version in the next few months.
