There is support in place from the Government to get help with your living costs. If you’re eligible, you may be able to get benefits and other financial support.
To find out what you may be eligible for, you can complete the questions on this page.
Extra money for carers
You could get £69.70 a week if you care for someone for at least 35 hours a week and they get certain benefits. You do not have to be related to, or live with, the person you care for. Check if you’re eligible.
Paying your rent
Direct debit is the main way to pay your rent and service charge. Weekly or monthly payments will be taken straight from your bank account so you don’t have to worry about missing a payment.
This way offers a payment guarantee, so if the bank makes an error, or we do, you’ll get a refund as soon as possible.
Don’t forget, if you’re registered with MyGuinness, you can keep an eye on your rent account, including reviewing your balance and making payments.
You can call us on 0303 123 1890, 24hrs a day, 7 days a week to make a rent payment on your account.
