Rent Assistance

A regular extra payment if you pay rent and get certain payments from us.

You don’t need to submit a claim for Rent Assistance.

We check if you can get Rent Assistance when you make a new claim for certain payments

If you already get a payment from us, we’ll check if you can get Rent Assistance when you tell us any of the following:

  • you’ve changed your address
  • your accommodation details have changed.

We may ask you to complete a Rent Certificate or provide a lease agreement. You only need to do this if we ask you to.

Review of your rent details

We’re still doing some reviews for customers already getting payments from us. You may have got a letter asking you to confirm or update your rent details. Read more about the review of your details.
