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:

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

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.
