If you received too little housing allowance, you will be awarded a payment in arrears. The amount due will be paid to you as a lump sum.
The housing allowance may be paid to the Housing Bank if you have previously been asked to repay some of your housing allowance after it has been recalculated. If you received financial support from your municipality, the housing allowance may be paid to the municipality.
If you believe that our decision relating to payment in arrears is wrong, you can provide us with new information about your income and wealth. The deadline for providing information is three weeks after receiving a decision letter. If you want to do this, you must complete the form “Housing allowance – new information about income and wealth”.
