Housing benefits

Hi, I was just wondering if anyone knew whether you are still entitled to housing benefit if you are coming off Job seekers allowance to start a job which is only a 20 hour contract? Would this affect the amount of rent we get paid a week? Thanks

    Hi Rebekah, :wave:

    Welcome to the boards! :)

    I've moved your thread from the Welcome Centre to the Home, Law and Money section as you might get more responses to your post here.

    Thanks for posting to ask these questions about Housing Benefit. There's an article called Housing benefits which you can find here that you might find useful.

    Hope this helps. :)

    Hey Rebekah,

    Just wanted to add to what that last message that another option could be the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) They offer help and advice about a range of different things including benefits. Here's the link to their website: https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/

    Hope this helps, do let us know how you get on :)
