Review your Benefits

We regularly review Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support claims to make sure the information we hold is up-to-date, this is to make sure that the amount we pay you is correct.

If you've been asked to complete a review, you'll need to complete our online form.

Before you begin

We'll be looking at things like:

  • who's currently living in your property
  • if you have any other properties
  • changes to your income
  • changes to your savings
  • changes to your pensions
  • the benefits you're currently in receipt of
  • your current expenses including childcare and rent

What you will need

You will need to have the following information to hand:

  • your National Insurance number
  • the names and dates of birth of everyone living in your house
  • details about your bank accounts and any savings
  • what benefits you're currently receiving
  • what money you have coming in
  • what you spend on childcare and rent

Supporting documents

You may also need to include:

  • the last two statements for each of your bank and savings accounts
  • your last three wage slips
  • any invoices for childcare and rent

You can either include them as part of your review or within 21 days of completing it. If you do not provide the documents, it will affect your claim.
