The program for experienced advisors
The Quick Benefits Calculator enables experienced advisors to calculate entitlement to means tested social security benefits with the minimum of fuss and the maximum of speed.
Users are presented with a standard case which they modify to reflect client circumstances. The sophisticated what-if? facility lets users explore a range of scenarios -- better off comparisons can be printed side by side. A colour coded warning system notifies operators of possible errors and the package comes with full instructions including several worked examples for tax credits and state pension credit.
Benefits covered include:
- universal credit
- income support and income based jobseeker's allowance
- employment and support allowance
- working and child tax credits
- pension credit
- housing benefit and council tax benefit
The program is updated several times each year to cover benefits up-ratings and changes in social security law. Cases stored under one set of rules and rates can be updated following a change with the minimum of user intervention.
