Claim Housing Benefit

Housing Benefit can help you pay for part or all of your rent.

You could get Housing Benefit if you:

  • pay rent
  • are on a low income or claiming benefits
  • have savings below £16,000

You can apply if you’re unemployed or working. If you live with a partner, only one of you can get Housing Benefit.
