Benefits Advice

Our Benefits Calculator provided by EntitledTo for Cordale and Caledonia tenants can be accessed by clicking the button below.  This tool will assist you in easily determining the benefits you are entitled to and help you figure out if you are affected by under occupancy (having more space than you need) or the benefits cap.  Below is a link to access the calculator on their website.  It will enable you to quickly calculate your benefits and understand how these factors might impact you. We know that a number of our tenants rely on welfare benefits to help with their rent payments and the general cost of living.  We also know that some don’t receive all they are entitled to; or face difficulties when making a claim.   The benefits system is also very complex – please contact your Neighbourhood Officer who can assist or put you in touch with specialist agencies.
