YANML, YANMSocialWorker [it takes 5 weeks to get an appointment with her]: Is a housing benefit "income"?

I receive Social Security disability, but have always worked to the extent that I am able (usually 10-25 hrs per week), though have never managed to hit the cap for potentially losing benefits.
I've just been offered a live-in position, though it's still a part-time, low wage, unskilled job. Will the value of the housing+utilities be added to my modest wages (same as my last position) as "income" from this job with regards to calculating whether or not my benefits level will change?
