What is Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction and can I claim?

Things we need to know when you apply:

  • National Insurance number for you (and your partner if applicable)
  • Full name and dates of birth of everyone in your household
  • For Housing Benefit claims, Landlord’s details, the amount of rent you pay and any charges included in your rent, such as water or electricity
  • Your household income, savings, investments and expenses – including things like childcare costs and private pension contributions.

  • You will be able to upload any evidence whilst making your application.
  • You can save your application at various stages and finish it later.  If you save your details part way through, you will be given a Citizen Access Benefits key code. Make a note of this as you'll need it to log back into your form.
  • We will contact you by email to ask for any additional information to support your claim
