If you are currently in receipt of Housing Benefit, you can continue to receive this for help towards your rent if there are no changes in your circumstances that mean you would have to apply for Universal Credit.
If you do not currently receive Housing Benefit, unless you are of pension credit age, you cannot make a new claim for Housing Benefit and need to claim Universal Credit instead.
You can do your own benefit check at the entitled to website.
