Switch your housing rent payments to Direct Debit and WIN £1,000 of shopping vouchers in our Prize Draw 


With the introduction of Universal Credit the way in which you receive your housing benefit may be changing, and you could be responsible for paying your rent direct to your housing provider. 

Switching to Direct Debit can help you manage these payments, meaning you can relax knowing that your rent will be paid automatically, so you never have to worry about forgetting to pay. It’s the convenient way for you to keep on top of your budget.
