Request housing allowance increase

Service Description

You can submit a new application for a higher housing allowance as a subsidy for your housing costs while you are still receiving housing allowance if

  • your total income has decreased
  • the number of household members to be considered has increased, or
  • your rent or homeownership burden has increased.

These changes may, but do not necessarily, result in an increase in your housing allowance.

The increase in housing allowance is effective from the date of application. As a rule, a retroactive increase of the housing allowance is not possible.
