Housing Benefit

Housing Benefit is a payment that helps you pay part or all of your rent.

Council Tax Support and Housing Benefit

It is only available to people who rent their homes and who are on a low income or receiving benefits. If you have more than £16,000 in savings then you will not be eligible for Housing Benefit.

If you rent your home from a private landlord and are eligible for Housing Benefit, the maximum you can receive is based on Local Housing Allowance rules.
