Better Off Calculations

A better off calculation is used to determine out of various options which one would be the one where the individual would be better off financially and identify the financial benefits of work.

Each group member identified what their benefits were such as Jobseekers Allowance, Personal Independence Payment or Disability Living Allowance and added them into the calculation. We then calculated based on age. After all calculations were put into place, we worked out how much better off we would be in paid employment on a 16 hour part time job on minimum wage.

After calculating how much better off each group member would be in employment, we were then able to print out the full calculations on paper for each group member who have completed a better off calculation.
