Please see our dedicated Coronavirus page for Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support as this gives important information. 

If you’re working age, you’ll need to claim Universal Credit to get help with your rent - unless you’re in one of these groups:

  • You’ve been placed in temporary accommodation by our Housing Choices Team
  • You live in supported accommodation
  • You get a severe disability premium as part of another benefit

Find out more by visiting the Universal Credit website

If you’re pension age, you can claim Housing Benefit.

The rules are complicated - so contact us if you're in any doubt.
