Benefits finder for single parents under 18

When you’re a young single parent, it can feel like you have a lot to deal with. And the benefits system can seem overwhelming. But it’s there to help you. So it’s a good idea to make sure you’re not missing out on money and support you could be getting.

The rules around benefits for people under 18 are complicated. It’s a good idea to speak to an adviser before making a claim, especially if you live with your family. For a free, no-strings conversation about your situation, you can talk to us.

The benefits finder tool here uses basic information about you to tell you about the benefits you might be able to get.

If you need to start over at any point, just refresh the page.
