Making a claim

To make a claim for housing benefit you can:

When will my claim start?

Your claim will normally start the Monday following the date your application form is received in by the benefit section. Your claim may start earlier if you had good cause for not making a claim earlier e.g. illness or bereavement.

Filling in your form

  • Read the form before you start
  • Remember to answer all questions
  • Sign the declaration
  • Send all relevant documentary evidence in with your completed form
