  • From 29 November 2017, for residents living in many postcodes in Chesterfield, we won’t be able to accept new claims for Housing Benefit if you are of working age - you will have to claim Universal Credit instead.   

    You will still need to make a separate claim for Council Tax Support.

The Chesterfield Borough Council web benefits calculator simply allows you the user to fill out a form for an instant online benefits estimate.

Remember, this calculation is an estimate based on the information you supply. For a full evaluation make a formal claim ASAP. Usually benefit will only start from the Monday after the council receive your form.
