Usually you will have your benefit paid directly to you. It will be paid directly into your bank or building society account, if you have one, or by cheque.
If you do not already have a bank or building society account, you may want to set one up. That way you can arrange to pay the rent to your landlord automatically, using a standing order.
You can get advice about opening and running a bank account from any bank or building society. You can also get advice from a welfare organisation such as Citizens Advice. It is up to you to pay the rent to your landlord. If you don’t pay your rent, you may be taken to court and evicted from the property.
