Minimum income limits

If a household’s gross income which counts towards the housing allowance is less than the minimum limits shown in the table, the income does not affect the housing allowance paid to the household. A possible earnings deduction has not been taken into account in the amounts in the table. If the basic deductible is EUR 10 or less it is waived.

Use an online calculator to estimate how your income affects the amount of the housing allowance. Please note that the calculator can only provide an estimate. If your incomes vary, the incomes are taken into account as an average.
