What benefits could you be eligible for?


If you have been made redundant, you may be eligible for financial support.

Universal Credit and other benefits could help whilst you’re looking for your next job and as you take the first steps in your new career.

You can use the Benefits Checker tool to get a quick idea of what financial support you may be able to claim. It will ask you a few questions and suggest what help you are most likely to be eligible for. For a more complete understanding of all the support that may be available, and how much you might get, use a benefits calculator. This will take a bit longer to fill in, but will give you a more detailed picture of the help you could receive.

You can also find information on all the redundancy support that could be available to you on the Employment and Benefits Support website.
