You may be able to claim Housing Benefit or Council Tax Support if you're on a low income and your savings or investments are under £16,000.

You can't get Housing Benefit if you're a homeowner, but there is other financial help available for homeowners.
You can claim Housing Benefit whether or not you're working.
Complete the online form to apply for both Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support.
Depending on your circumstances, the form will take from 10 minutes up to 45 minutes to complete.
