We have information in different languages about Rent Assistance
Call our Multilingual Phone Service to speak with us in your language about your Centrelink payments and services.
You'll need to give us proof of your rent arrangements to get Rent Assistance.
If you get certain payments from us we’ll assess your eligibility when you pay rent and you:
- tell us you’ve moved address
- tell us the rent you pay has changed.
If you don’t get a payment from us we’ll assess your eligibility when you claim certain payments.
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.
How to get it
You don’t need to submit a claim for Rent Assistance. We assess your eligibility when you claim a payment from us.
