What is Housing Benefit
Housing Benefit is a benefit for people on a low income to help them pay their rent. You may be able to get Housing Benefit if you are on other benefits, work part-time or work full-time on a low income. You cannot get Housing Benefit to help with the costs of a mortgage or home loan. If you are an owner-occupier, you may be able to get help with your mortgage interest through Income Support, income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) or Pension Credit.
For information about Income Support, see Help for people on a low income – Income Support, for information about income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA), see Benefits and tax credits for people looking for work, for information about ESA, see Benefits for people who are sick or disabled and for information about Pension Credit,see Benefits for people over sixty.
Housing Benefit does not help with the Council Tax, but if you are on a low income you may be able to get Council Tax Benefit to help pay your Council Tax.
