As the UK has now left the EU, the rules about who can claim Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction have changed.

If you are a citizen of the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland, you may now be subject to immigration rules.

You are eligible to claim Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction, if:

  • you and your family have settled status (indefinite leave to remain), or pre-settled status, or
  • you had a right to reside on 31 December 2020
