Since its introduction, Housing Benefit has been pivotal to the Government’s welfare policy. Although the benefit remains a controversial claim for many, it’s also a lifeline for people struggling to pay rent due to their own unique situations.
If you’re earning under £16,000 p.a, Housing Benefit may be available.
Those currently responsible for paying rent and earning less than £16,000 per year (through work or benefits payments) and have less than £16,000 in savings could possibly claim. Certain restrictions do apply depending upon individual circumstances – with one key example being that students are typically not eligible for Housing Benefit.
Housing Benefit limitations
It’s true to say that the DWP (Department for Work and Pensions) have tightened legislation in recent years. For example, there are benefit caps in place for those aged 16 to 64 effecting certain councils from April 2013. It’s important to notify the Housing Benefits team of any changes in your circumstances as this could affect the amount of Housing Benefit you could possibly claim.
