LHA rates for the severely disabled

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.
