If you're severely disabled, or live with a severely disabled partner, and have no dependent children, your benefit will be based on the one bedroom LHA rate.
The amount of benefit you can get may be affected by:
- any money you have coming in
- any savings you have
- how much your rent is
- if you share paying the rent with someone else
- if you're a joint tenant (contact us for more information)
- Go to the LHA and the rates we pay page to check our rates.
If you claim benefit you can only get it for yourself and your family. If you share a property with someone who isn't part of your family, your benefit may be reduced. This is because we may expect them to pay towards your rent.
