Make an online benefit claim

When you make a claim for some other benefits, such as Income Support, Jobseekers Allowance, Employment and Support Allowance or Pension Credit, with Job Centre Plus or The Pension Service, they will ask you if you also wish to claim Housing Benefit.

If you haven't claimed Housing Benefit via Job Centre Plus or The Pension Service, then you can claim directly with us.

You will need to claim Council Tax Support direct from us, but Job Centre Plus or the Pension Service may still share your information with us.
