Check if you can get benefits for 2 homes
Usually you can only get benefits to help pay rent on the main home that you live in.
You could get help to pay rent on 2 homes in specific situations.
If you're away from home for a different reason
You probably cannot get benefits for 2 homes, but you could still get benefits for your main home while you're away.
Check our guidance on benefits while you're away from home.
If you need more help
Contact Citizens Advice. A benefits adviser can help you check what you're entitled to, give the right evidence, or challenge a benefits decision.
