How to claim Housing Benefit

Housing Benefit helps you pay your rent if you are on a low income.

From 27th June 2018 you may need to claim Universal Credit as it replaces some new claims for Housing Benefit.

The amount of Housing Benefit you can get is worked out by looking at:

  • how much money you have coming in
  • your personal circumstances and the amount of rent you have to pay
  • the amount of savings you have

These benefit calculators will help you to find out what you could receive.

For more information on what Housing Benefit and/or Council Tax Reduction is and to make a claim use our online form below.
