    If your housing benefit ended, you can't start a new claim if you're working age unless you're either living in supported or temporary housing.
    Help with any rent is now paid as part of Universal Credit. Whether there's any entitlement will depend on your circumstances. If you live with a partner you claim as a couple. Use a benefits calculator to check entitlement.


    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    No need to be sorry at all, you didn't do anything wrong.

    I didn't see your comment when i posted, we commented within a minute of each other and i was still typing mine when you posted so the page hadn't refresded.
