Help With Your Rent & Other Debts
Do you qualify for Housing Benefit payments?
Housing Benefit can help you with all or part of your rent. If you only qualify for partial Housing Benefit, we will expect you to pay the shortfall not covered by Housing Benefit.
If you are currently waiting for your benefit claim to be assessed by Dumfries & Galloway Council, you need to keep us informed. You will be expected to continue paying your rent in the meantime to ensure your account does not slip into arrears.
You may also qualify for other benefits which could help you to boost your income and manage your spending and your debts better.
Our Income Services Officers are available to assist with maximising your household income, providing you with information and guidance and ensuring you are in receipt of all the benefits you are entitled too.
