Housing Benefit

Information about Housing Benefit - a regular council payment to help pay your rent

Housing Benefit is a regular council payment to help pay your rent. You may be eligible for Housing Benefit if you are on a low income or claiming benefits. An overview of Housing Benefit is available from the Department for Work & Pensions 

The Housing Benefit Portal

Landlords: From 1 June 2022 we will no longer be sending payment schedules either by post or email. If you have not done so already, please register for the online portal where amongst many useful functions you can view your schedules, next payment amounts and individual tenants' entitlement details. There's a brief guide on how to register 

Claimants: The online portal is also available for you. You will need a MyEastleigh account and within this you can add Housing Benefits as a service to see all aspects of your claim, from the details we hold about you to your next payment amount.
