Tell us about a change

This form can be used to let us know about changes that can affect both Council Tax Reduction and Housing Benefit

What changes do we need to know about?

You need to tell us if any of the following change:

  • Your address (even if it's to another room in the same house); please note that if you only claim Housing Benefit at your current address and are now liable for Council Tax you will need to apply for Council Tax Reduction separately
  • People who live in your home
  • The income, capital, or savings of anyone living in your home
  • A young person living with you leaves school
  • A change in your payment details

What information do I need to complete this form?

To complete the form you will need:

  • Your claim reference number
  • Full details of your changes
