Can I Claim Benefit?

Local Housing Allowance Rates

April 2020 – March 2021

To calculate the LHA rate that your benefit will be based on allow one bedroom for:

  • every adult couple
  • any other adult age 16 or over
  • any two children of the same sex
  • any two children regardless of sex under age 10
  • any other child

The Local Housing Allowance rate that your benefit will be calculated on will depend on the number of occupiers in your household. Should you choose to live in a property larger than your requirements the maximum you will receive will be the rate that is applicable to the size of your family needs.
