Housing Benefit

Who can claim

You can claim Housing Benefit if you

  • have savings of less than £16,000
  • are moving from benefits into work
  • have a low income, from benefits or work including self employment.

You may still get Housing Benefit if your savings are more than £16,000 but you or your partner gets the Guarantee Credit part of Pension Credit.
