Housing Benefit provides help towards rent payments for people on a low income or claiming certain benefits.
Use the North East Derbyshire District Council (NEDDC) Benefits Calculator to provide you with an estimate on the benefits you may be entitled to.
If you think you may qualify to receive Housing Benefit, you need to complete an application form. You can download a form from the NEDDC website (see the link to the right of this page) or pick one up from your local Area Housing Office or One Stop Shop.
If you have applied for Housing Benefit or are already receiving it, it is important that you respond to all requests for information and return any forms promptly. Any delays on your part could lead to rent arrears building up unnecessarily.
