Housing Benefit

Housing Benefit is available to help people meet the cost of rent when they are finding it difficult to pay themselves. Anyone can apply for Housing Benefit whether you are working, unemployed, on other benefits or not. The amount of benefit you get depends on the amount of money coming into your home, your savings and the numbers and ages of people in your house. If you are on Income Support and live alone in your house then you will normally get all of your rent paid. However, if there are other adults living in the house this may affect the amount of Housing Benefit you receive.

It is important that you notify the Housing Benefit Section immediately of any change in your household circumstances, as it is often very difficult to get a claim backdated particularly when information has not been provided to the Housing Benefit Section on time.

Points to Remember

  • Anyone can apply for Housing Benefit:
  • You should make a claim as soon as you can as it is difficult to get a claim backdated.
  • The amount of Housing Benefit you get will depend on the money coming into your house, your savings, and the number and ages of the people in your house.
  • You must notify Housing Benefit Section of any change in household circumstances immediately.
  • You must complete and return, on time, any Housing Benefit forms sent to you by the Council If you change address, you must notify the Department of Works & Pensions (previously D.S.S)

 

If you require any assistance with any aspects of your housing benefit claim please contact Paul Harrison, Welfare Benefits Officer, at the office on 0141 771 2228.

 

Remember it is your responsibility to ensure that due rent is paid on time whether that is by yourself or through Housing Benefit.
