The amount of rent allowance
The amount depends on your rent, income, assets and housemates. Due to the expiry of the income limits, you might be entitled to rent allowance in 2020. You can calculate whether you are eligible for rent benefit on the website of the Belastingdienst.
You can apply for the allowance via the Belastingdienst. It is based on the information that the Belastingdienst has on you. Therefor, our advice: if something changes, report this immediately. This prevents you from getting too less or from having to repay it later. You can report these changes by logging in with your DigiD at “My allowances”
