Should I claim Housing Benefit or Universal Credit?

Depending on where you live in Basildon you may not be able to claim Housing Benefit, and will need to make a claim for Universal Credit.

You will still be able to claim Housing Benefit if;

  • You are a Pensioner - Universal Credit is a working age benefit and you will be able to claim Housing Benefit if you have reached state pension age.
  • You have three or more children - Families with three or more children will still be able to make a claim for Housing Benefit until November 2018.
  • You are living in supported accommodation - If you rent from a charity, or housing association, and receive care or support as part of your rent then you may be able to claim Housing Benefit. Please speak to your landlord for more advice.
