The benefits you are entitled to depend on a range of circumstances including your age, any disabilities you have, where you live, what kind of property you live in, if you have dependents and so on.


Current and future benefits include Universal Credit, housing benefit and personal independence payment (which replaced disability living allowance). Many people will still be in receipt of older benefits that are being phased out and replaced by Universal Credit - including income support, employment and support allowance, incapacity benefit and tax credits, which was a benefit for people who worked.
