Personal appearance required: No

You yourself, as the person entitled to housing benefit, must submit the application.

After checking your income and costs, you will be granted the housing allowance if you are entitled to it.

You will be notified in writing of the approval and the amount of the payment.

If your financial situation or living circumstances have changed, this may also result in a reduction of the housing allowance.

You are obliged to notify the housing allowance authority immediately of any changes that may lead to a reduction in the housing allowance. To ensure that you do not wrongly receive housing allowance, the housing allowance authority regularly checks the household members by means of a so-called data comparison.
