Most common benefits in the UK

The welfare system in the UK has hundreds (if not thousands) of interconnected benefits and emergency grants. Moreover, these benefits and grants are managed by the central, regional and local governments as well as charitable organisations. As a result, it is a formidable challenge to get a holistic view of all the benefits and grants available for vulnerable customers, and inevitably, millions of people are missing the benefits they are entitled to.

Inbest is the benefits calculator with the widest benefits coverage available in the market. We cover not only national benefits but also regional and local benefits, devolved benefits and emergency grants. Our wider benefits coverage puts an extra £100/month in the pockets of our customers.

“Inbest is the only benefits calculator that calculates devolved benefits, it is a vital resource for our customers.”

Pamela​ Stewart, Deputy CEO at Advice Direct Scotland
