Housing Benefit

Qualifying for benefits

GOV.UK - Housing Benefit (opens new window) explains eligibility for housing benefit. But, broadly, in Wiltshire, new housing benefit claims can only be considered if one of the following criteria applies:

  • you and your partner are of state pension age; or
  • you are living in specified accommodation or temporary accommodation (the Housing Benefit Team will determine if this is the case)

There is a tool on (an independent body) that will help you find out what benefits you may be entitled to. It is only an estimate based on the information you supply.

If you believe you may be eligible for housing benefit, go to: Claiming benefits.
