    Difficult to advise about your housing costs because you've blanked out all the information on the screenshot.

    It's normal to have to attend an appointment at your local job centre when you first claim UC.
    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.

    I can see "verfied" at the top, which means exactly what it says your documents have been verified. You will need to wait until you receive your statement at the end of your assessment period. This will then tell you all the elements you're entitled to. As you have a liability to pay rent then you should receive the housing element. How much you're entitled to will depend on your circumstances.
