Rent allowance is a contribution towards the rent. Do you live in a rented house? Then you might get a housing allowance. The amount of the benefit depends on your rent, income, age, and your living situation. Is your buying power too high? Then you get no housing benefit.
Top limit of housing allowance
The amount of the housing allowance depends on the amount of your income, assets, family composition and the amount of your rent. Therefore, someone with a low income will have a larger housing allowance than someone with a high income. There are income limits established for single and for multi-person households. In a household with several people the incomes of both partners count. The incomes of others living in the home, for example, such as children, count as well.
If you apply for a housing allowance, you use the full rent amount. That is, the rent including the services of the house. There are a certain number of services you may include in the calculation of rental amount. To be eligible for housing benefit, the rent may not be less than EUR 222.18 and not more than EUR 681.02. If your rent is higher or lower, then you are not entitled to a housing benefit. The housing allowance is not calculated only on the basis of the rent, your income is also important in the calculation. The income limit for single housing allowance is € 21,025, and for multi-person households the limit is € 28,550.
For pensioners depart from the income thereof.
