In the future, more households are to be relieved of the housing benefit.

Find out more about the benefit and where those affected apply for the money here.

More households are to be relieved from January 2023 with a state rent subsidy: up to 1.4 million more households are to be added to the 600,000 housing benefit households so far.

This was reported by the German Press Agency (dpa).

The housing allowance is also to be increased by an average of 190 euros per month.

This means that eligible households receive an average of around 370 euros per month.

Housing benefit is to increase in 203 – who will be entitled in the future?

Households that do not receive social benefits but still have little money can apply for housing benefit.

The portal swp.de

describes whether you are entitled to housing benefit or not, depending on a complicated calculation

– there is no easy-to-remember income threshold.

Housing benefit calculator: How much housing benefit is there in theory?

With the official housing benefit calculator you can at least find out whether you are already entitled to housing benefit.

Important information is the number of household members, the total monthly income and the gross monthly rent.

According to the Südwest Presse report, owners who use their apartment themselves can also apply for help, for example.

"You can get the housing subsidy if you cannot bear running costs because your income is too low"

Housing benefit must first be applied for

However, the benefit must be applied for: anyone who is entitled to housing benefit can apply to the municipal housing benefit authority.

Experts are now expecting a flood of additional applications from January 1st;

some assume that many households may now have to wait months for the payment of the housing benefit in view of the bureaucratic effort.

How citizens should be financially relieved

A number of other innovations will come into force as early as December 2022: the energy flat-rate of 300 euros will be paid to pensioners this month.

For gas and district heating customers, there is also a one-off emergency aid in December.

In the coming year, the gas and electricity price brake should also relieve millions of households in the energy crisis.

Many families will also be relieved somewhat: child benefit will increase to 250 euros from January 1, 2023.
