You can claim Housing Benefit if you pay rent to live in your home:
- if you have a low income whether from benefits or low paid work, including if you are self-employed
- if you are moving from benefits into work
- if you have savings of less than £16,000.
Please note: if you have a partner we will include their income and savings as well when we work out any benefit entitlement.
If you want help with your Council Tax too, you only need to make one claim. We will assess your Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support award at the same time.
