How do I claim Housing Benefit?

There are three ways in which you can claim Housing Benefit and/or Council Tax Reduction. It is a joint Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction application form.

To claim online you need to access the benefit calculator. This will establish how much Benefit/Reduction you may be entitled to. Once this has been calculated, you have the option to complete the online application.

Alternatively, you can download our application form or request a form to be sent to you by contacting us on 01424 787740 or by emailing

Do not delay returning the form to us as you may lose Benefit/Reduction to which you are entitled. You can claim up to 13 weeks in advance, so if you know you are moving to Rother soon or your circumstances are about to change you can claim now.

Please return your completed form to the address below.

If you have any questions about your application please contact us:
