If you wish to apply for housing benefit or council tax support, you can do this using our online benefit application form.
We know forms can be long and complicated so the council has used new internet forms technology to make our online application as easy as possible for you to complete. Features include:
Form opens in a new window
- You can fill in the
whole form off-line. The form is therefore 100%
reliable - It doesn't matter if there are any glitches in the
internet, you can carry on with the form without any problem. And you don't have to
fill it in all in one go - You can save the form on your computer,
and come back to it later.
- The form will help
and guide you as you work through it to ensure you only fill in parts that are relevant to
your claim. This makes the form much simpler for you.
- The form checks
itself for errors and highlights anything you have missed. When your
form is free of errors it is easier for us to process.
- When completed you
can submit the form directly to our server so we can begin processing
your claim without delay.
- Where we need to see
evidence from you to support your claim, the form will give you a customised list of
exactly what we need to see.
- If you need them,
extra forms (e.g. for your employer or landlord) can be printed
- To protect your privacy
all information you enter on the form is encrypted.
