Housing Benefit

Housing benefit is a means tested benefit that is intended to help towards housing costs for rented accommodation. 

You may be able to get housing benefit if you are working and are on a low income, get a pension or are on benefit.

The amount of housing benefit you get generally depends on:

  • Your income and benefits
  • Any other money, savings or investments you have
  • The income and savings of other people who live in your home.

 

For more information visit the Waltham Forest Council website where you will be able to:

  • Get an estimate of your housing benefit/council tax benefit by using the online benefits calculator 
  • Make a claim online
  • Find details on how to contact the Benefits Service
  • Report a change in your circumstances
  • Report a change of address
  • Register for an account and access our e-citizens service to view your housing benefit and council Ttax support details online

 

Please don’t hesitate to contact Ascham Homes if you need any help completing your forms.
