Do you receive housing benefit or Universal Credit?
If you’re finding it hard to keep up with your rent payments, you need to make sure you are claiming everything you are entitled to. It could be what makes the difference between being able to pay your rent on time or not.
Benefits can pay for all or part of your rent depending on a number of different things. To find out how much you could claim:
- Use our free benefit calculator
- Contact your local authority using the government’s housing benefit information
If you need to make a new benefit claim to help pay your rent, you will probably need to apply for Universal Credit. This has replaced a number of benefits for most people, including housing benefit.
If you already get housing benefit, do not worry - you will carry on getting it as normal. But if you have a change in your life, like moving in with a partner or having a baby, you might need to make a new claim for Universal Credit instead.
