Housing benefit review

If you receive housing benefit we will regularly contact you to do a review of your circumstances. This is to ensure our records are correct and you are getting what you are entitled to. 

If we have contacted you to request a review use the start button below to confirm your current situation, you will have 14 days to complete this. Please answer all relevant questions and send supporting documentation as mentioned. Please don't delay, as you risk having your benefit payments suspended if you don't provide information to us.
