Do I qualify for Housing Benefit?

Housing Benefit is available if:

  • you pay rent
  • your income, savings and investments are below a certain amount
  • not in receipt of Universal Credit

Usually, you are not eligible for Housing Benefit if you:

  • have savings of over £16,000
  • you live in the home of a close relative
  • you are a full-time student (unless you're disabled or have children)
