Housing Benefit and Local Housing Allowance

Housing Benefit and Local Housing Allowance help people on a low income pay their rent.

If you are making a new Housing Benefit claim and you are of working age then you may have to claim Universal Credit instead.

If you rent your home from a private landlord then the amount you may get will be worked out on the relevant Local Housing Allowance Rate.

Visit the Applying for housing benefit page on the Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council website for more information.
