I want to move out but I have no job and I’m on benefits? ?
I’m 26 and single. Could I move into a house and get money or into a room?
Sorry guys I was being silly.

Speak to your local council to see what, if anything, you'd be eligible for with regards to housing benefit.
Or; get a job.

Nobody is going to rent to you without a job. Most landlords require that you have held your job for at least a full year. Some landlords only require 6 months.

What country are you in?
In the UK, a small number of landlords accept DSS. However, the problem you are going to have is that you need the money to get moved in, as you can only claim for your rent once you are living there.
There is also an upper limit as to how much rent you can claim and at 26 you can only claim the going rate for a room in a shared house, not for a place to yourself.
You are free to move into a more expensive place, but you will have to fund the difference in cost yourself.
