Council tax and housing benefits
Housing benefit and council tax benefit are national welfare benefits which help people on low incomes.
Housing benefit is paid to people with a low income who pay
rent. Council tax benefit is paid to people with a low income who
pay council tax. Both housing benefit and council tax benefit are
means-tested benefits. This means that when we work out your
benefit, we have to take account of things like your income,
investments and savings. Local councils run the Housing Benefit and
Council Tax Benefit schemes, using Government rules.
