HAP and other benefits

    I'm someone that worries alot, so this is just a what if question.

    I am currently working and I know I am entitled to receive the HAP payment which will help because rent prices seems to be crazy.

    But what if I end up sick and cannot work and afford to pay the difference to the landlord? Rent alone will take up all my social welfare or most of it, then I have bills. I think things will be tight and through no fault of my own. Would I be entitled to receive any other help towards paying rent?
