Benefit calculators

Change in contact hours

We are unavailable by telephone on Thursdays. You can leave a voicemail for us to call you back the next day or email enquiries to us at benefit.services@stroud.gov.uk and put your claim number in the subject line.


Meetings with benefit assessors are by appointment only.  You can leave any documents with Reception staff during Council opening times.

The below calculators are free to use, anonymous, and have replaced the Benefits Adviser service.

Please note that if you have over £16,000 in savings or capital assets you will not be entitled to housing benefit or council tax support.

Use an independent benefits calculator to find out:

  • what benefits you could get
  • how to claim
  • how your benefits will be affected if you start work
