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.

You must apply for an increased housing allowance at your local housing allowance office. In doing so, the requirements for this claim will be checked.

The increase in housing benefit will take effect from the date of application. As a rule, it is not possible to increase the housing allowance retroactively.
