In order to claim Housing Benefit an application form (updated April 2013) must be completed and submitted to us. Once completed, either return it to the address on the front of the application form, or you can take it to one of our Contact Centres.
Finally, you can request an application form be issued to you by post. To do this please telephone us on 01246 242436.
To comply with Government regulations, we require original proof of all income, capital and tenancy/residency. These proofs can be sent by post direct to the Benefits section, or copied at one of our Contact Centres, either with your completed form, or as soon as they become available to you. NEVER DELAY IN SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION FORM AS YOU COULD LOSE BENEFIT.
To help give an estimate of the benefit you may be entitled to when submitting a new claim, simply fill out the "The Web Benefits Calculator" form for an instant on-line Benefits estimate.
Remember this calculation is an estimate based on the information you supply. For a full evaluation make a formal claim ASAP. Usually benefit will only start from the Monday after the Council receive your form.
