Who Can Claim?

Housing Benefit

You can claim Housing Benefit if you are responsible for paying the rent for your home to a private landlord, a housing association or the Council and you are either in specified supported accommodation or temporary accommodation. Remember you cannot claim Housing Benefit if you are receiving help with your housing costs within your Universal Credit.

If you and if applicable your partner are both of pensionable age then you can claim Housing Benefit if you are responsible for paying rent on your home to a private landlord, a housing association or the council.
