How do I apply for Housing Benefit?

 

You may be able to make an application for housing benefit in the form of Local Housing Allowance to assist you with the rent payments depending upon your income. Local Housing Allowance is a way of calculating the amount of benefit you are entitled to and is based on a maximum rate set monthly. These levels are the maximum you will be entitled to, you may be entitled to less depending on your circumstances and income.
