Rent Supplement

If you are getting Injury Benefit and you have difficulty paying your rent, you may qualify for a supplement under the Supplementary Welfare Allowance Scheme.

Apply to your local Intreo Centre or your local Social Welfare Office. The Department takes your situation into account and they decide whether or not you can get a supplement.
