Housing Benefit

How much Housing Benefit will I get?

In most cases you won't be able to get any Housing Benefit if you:

  • Have savings over £16,000 (unless you get Pension Credit Guarantee Credit)
  • Live in the home of a close relative
  • Are a full-time student (unless you are disabled or have children)
  • Live in accommodation provided by your employer as a condition of employment
  • Are an asylum seeker or sponsored to be in the UK

Use the Housing Benefit Calculator (opens new window) provided by 'Entitleto' to find out how much you will get.

If you rent privately the amount you can get will be limited by:

  • The Local Housing Allowance (LHA)
  • The Bedroom Standard
