Backdating time: Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction

From April 2016, the number of weeks that Housing Benefit claims and Council Tax Reduction claims (for people of working age) can be backdated for will reduce to one month.

What does this mean for me?

It's really important claims for Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction are made quickly, so you don't lose out.

You can now have your claim - and any amount of money you are entitled to - backdated to cover one month.
