Chelmsford City Council


Since December 2018, many people are not able to make a new claim to us for Housing Benefit. Instead, if you need help with your rent, you will need to apply for Universal Credit. You can read more about the changes.

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.
