Apply for housing benefit or council tax support
Since 9 May 2018 most new claims for help to pay rent have had to be made through universal credit. You can still apply for housing benefit if:
- You and your partner are of pension credit age
- You live in specified accommodation
- You live in temporary accommodation provided by us
If you have any further queries or are unsure which benefit to claim, please contact us. You'll still need to continue to claim council tax support from us, and can do so using the form below.
