Most of the government's welfare reforms are now in place.
Housing Benefit is a national benefit that can help to pay part or all of your rent if you are a tenant and on a low income. How much you get depends on your income and circumstances. From 11 October 2017 Universal Credit is being rolled out across Doncaster and you may have to claim Universal Credit instead of Housing Benefit for help with your rent. You can view your existing Housing Benefit claim through your My Doncaster account.
