We need to know if your circumstances change
The law says you must tell us if there is any change to the information we use to calculate your Housing Benefit (HB) or Council Tax Support (CTS).
If your circumstances change you must tell us immediately as it could affect the amount you receive.
You must tell us about change even if you have told another agency, such as the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) or the Pension Service.
If you are not sure if we need to know, tell us anyway. It is better to be safe than sorry.
Tell us about a change of circumstances
Tell us about a change of address
It is very important that you let us know within one month if there are any changes in your family or financial circumstances.
If you don't tell us about changes when they happen you may be committing benefit fraud and could face criminal charges. You will also need to pay back amounts that have been overpaid to which you are not entitled.
Council Tax Support
It is very important that you let us know if there are any changes in your family or financial circumstances within 21 days.
If you don't tell us about a change, we will add the over payment of CTS onto to your council tax account for repayment and your future instalments will increase.
