Helping couples to maxmise their income just got easier

We've added more support to help you advise couples who must choose which benefit to claim when they meet the criteria for more than one. We'll help you ensure your customers can always maximise their benefit income.

For example, a couple may consist of one person who's in receipt of contributory-ESA and DLA and another who is their carer. Here, one person can claim ESA or the other can claim Income Support on behalf of the couple.

In many cases, the benefit chosen will have an impact on household income, so we've made this clearer. The Benefit and Budgeting Calculator will always calculate the benefit award to ensure the household is better off.

1. See the choice of benefits available. Go to the Quick summary panel on the right hand side, navigate to Your benefits.
2. See why the chosen benefit is better for the household. Go to the Quick summary panel on the right hand side, navigate to Advice and Support and click Information about your case.
