I’m earning more, can I still get Housing Benefit?

My income has gone up

If you’re getting Housing Benefit and your income goes up, you could get an extra 4 weeks of payments, called Extended Payment of Housing Benefit. Your council will decide if you can get this.

I’m going back to work

Your local council will decide if you can get in-work Housing Benefit. Once your 4 weeks of Extended Housing Benefit has ended, you can move onto in-work Housing Benefit without having to make a new claim.

Set your location

Forget my location


When you set your location we can give you details of services local to you, such as Passport offices, driving test centres or police stations, so you can complete any tasks and be away from your computer as quickly as possible.

Your approximate location is stored in a cookie on your machine, but we do not save your postcode or precise location on our servers.
