To apply for housing benefit and council tax support or to let us know about a change of circumstances you now need to register for MyAccount.
To do this you will need to have an email address. If you do not have an email address, you can easily create one free via a number of online providers such as 'yahoo', 'hotmail' or 'gmail'.
As a MyAccount customer you will also be able to manage your benefits account online:
- View your housing benefit entitlement, payment dates and amounts
- View your council tax support entitlement
- See how your housing benefit and council tax support has been calculated
If you hold a joint tenancy or are partners with a housing benefit and/or council tax support claimant, only the claimant can register to view the council tax and/ or housing benefit accounts.
