New Rent Supplement limits

Rent limits will increase for the Rent Supplement scheme from Friday 1 July.

Every county or county sub-district in Ireland has a maximum rent limit, within which Rent Supplement can be paid.

If you have entered into an informal top-up arrangement with your landlord you should contact your Community Welfare Service for assistance, as the Department of Social Protection will regularise these top-ups in most cases.

You can see the new limits on our Rent Supplement page. 

Similar maximum limits apply to the Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) scheme and these will also increase from Friday 1 July.
