How to claim
To apply for Housing Benefit you will need to complete the following online application form. You should now only apply for Housing Benefit if you are a pensioner or live in supported accommodation.
Working Age claimants, who do not live in supported accommodation, should apply for Universal Credit.
The online claim form has a 'save facility' on each page to allow you to complete it at your own pace.
After you have completed the online claim form you will need to send or bring it in with the supporting documentation as evidence.
