Housing benefit

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.
