Applying for housing benefit

Housing benefit

Please note - from 25 May 2016, if you're making your first claim for housing benefit and live in one of the following postcode areas - CV21 ***, CV22 *** and CV23 9** - you must apply for Universal Credit to receive support in paying your rent.

If you receive Universal Credit, you can still apply for council tax reduction to help pay your council tax.

If you're not eligible to apply for Universal Credit, you may be able to claim housing benefit to help pay your rent.
