Extended housing benefit payments (benefit run-on)
Extended benefit payments help people pay their rent when they are moving into a job or starting to earn more money and their Housing Benefit would otherwise stop or go down. The payments give an extra 4 weeks of Housing Benefit at the same rate as before the change. Extended benefit payments are sometimes called benefit run-on or extended payments.
