Local Housing Allowance for 2016/17

The table below shows the Local Housing Allowance rates for Aberdeenshire. This is the maximum weekly amount of housing benefit available if you live in private rented accommodation. The amount you get may be less depending on your income, and the number of bedrooms you are allowed depends on who lives with you.
