Hi I was just wandering how much housing benefit I am entitled to if I went private rented I have my son who lives with me
It all depends on have much your rent is, how much your council will pay, if you work or not and what money you have coming in.
There are a few online benefit calculator that you can use to work out a rough amount you would be entitled to. You could also go to your local advice center as many of them are equipped to give you the advice. Hope this helps
Thank you for your replies I am thinking about going to college but my son is only 6 months any advice on nursery fees etc would be very helpful
