If you (or your partner) are of working age, you may not be able to make a new claim for Housing Benefit. Instead, you will need to apply for Universal Credit to help pay your rent. 

You can find out whether you need to claim Housing Benefit or Universal Credit.

If you are applying for Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction at the same time, you only need to fill in the application form once.

We can only discuss your benefit claim with you, or with someone who has authority to discuss.

Once you have made your application, you will need to submit your evidence.

You can report issues with the website using this form, which will go directly to the Web Team. This team will be unable to deal with your enquiry if it is not related to the website.
