Struggling with your rent?
You're not alone
If you are finding hard to pay your rent or keep up with bills, you may qualify for Housing Benefit if you currently: claim benefits such as Job Seekers Allowance, Income Support, Incapacity Benefit, or State Retirement Pension; or earn a low wage, whether you are in full or part-time work. To apply for housing benefit you will need to contact your local authority – see the links at the bottom of this page to go direct to their website.
Find out what benefits you are entitled to
Gov.uk has a 'Benefits Advisor' which also provides a calculator helping you to work out what your entitlement may be. You can also use this benefit calculator for an instant benefit estimate from Wychavon District Council.
