What is Housing Benefit?

You could get Housing Benefit to help you pay your rent if you’re on a low income.

Housing Benefit can pay for part or all of your rent. How much you get depends on your income and circumstances.

You can apply for Housing Benefit whether you’re unemployed or working.

Housing Benefit can’t be paid for heating, hot water, energy or food.  Visit the DWP website to use a benefits calculator to see what else you might be entitled to.

How Do I Apply?

Extra Help to Pay Your Rent

You may also get extra help from your council called a ‘discretionary housing payment’ if your Housing Benefit doesn’t cover your rent.
