Very little.  Various benefits have been amalgamated to form one benefit – Universal Credit.

There are two maximum weekly limits people can receive – £350 and £500 depending on whether you are single or have a partner and family. Depending on your individual situation and what other benefits you receive, your housing benefit will fall in line with those two maximum weekly limits.
