Can anyone on here help me out with this. I am a private tenant in Scotland currently on job seekers allowance so my housing benefit is paid for me. I got the chance of a job on 24 hours a week n my take home pay after tax would be £140 a week will I be entitled to get my housing benefit paid for me


Hi Katie,

If you are on a low income, whether you are working or not, and need financial help to pay all or part of your rent, you may be able to get housing benefit. All Housing Benefit claims are processed by local authorities on behalf of the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP). To make a claim or if you need information about the rules for qualifying for a claim, contact your local authority.

All the best with your new job.
