House rent is most often the biggest cost you will have and it is important to keep up payments. Check to see if you are eligible for extra help with your housing costs even if you already claim benefits.

Check if you are eligible for help

● If Housing Benefit or Universal Credit doesn’t cover all of your rent, check
to see if you can make a claim for a discretionary housing payment
● Check whether you are eligible to apply for Council Tax Support

You may also be eligible for help from the Household Support Fund
