Housing & Benefits Calculator

Calculate your own (or your tenant's) Housing Benefit and Council Tax rebate.

For an estimate of your housing benefit and Council Tax rebate entitlement you can use the Directgov benefits calculator .

The amount of benefit you can get depends on:

  • how much income you (and your partner) have coming in
  • the amount of capital you have
  • the amount of money the government says you need to live on
  • deductions we may make for other people living in the property (these are called non dependants)
  • the amount of rent you pay

Deductions for items included in the rent, which do not count for benefits.

Then if you think you are entitled to benefit why not submit an on- line application for benefit.

If you have any problems with our calculator  or any general benefit enquiries please email us at benefits@gloucester.gov.uk

Use Open Portal to look up benefits that have been paid to you.
