What is Housing Benefit?
Housing Benefit is a Government scheme to help people on low income pay their rent. It doesn't matter if you are working or not.
The amount you get depends on your rent, the size of your family, your children's ages, any ill health or disability in the family and the level of your savings and weekly income. You may get less Housing Benefit if there is another adult (other than your partner) living with you.
