Housing benefit helps you pay all or some of your rent if you’re on a low income. The amount of housing benefit you can receive depends on:
- your family circumstances
- your income from working and other benefits
- any savings and investments you have
- the circumstances of other people you have living with you.
Your outgoings are not taken into account.
