Save time, do it online

We're setting up a new service so you can apply for Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support online. You'll be able to:

  • Make a new claim for Housing Benefit and/or Council Tax Support. You can save a claim part way through and come back to complete it.
  • Tell us of a change in your circumstances

What are the benefits?

  • If you apply online, you'll receive your money faster
  • The service is free, fast reliable and secure
  • No lengthy telephone conversations or visits to Council offices
  • It will save paper, so it's better for the environment
  • You'll be able to manage your Benefits account online 
  • The cost per transaction is significantly less for the Council, so it helps us to save money

If you want to be the first to find out when this new service will be available, give us your details using this form, and we'll keep you updated.
