Choose one of the following options

This form should only be used to submit a new claim for Housing Benefit and/or Council Tax Reduction. If you are already receiving Housing Benefit and/or Council Tax Reduction and you have had a Change in Circumstances you need to advise us of the change in writing and provide us with evidence.

Important Information

We can no longer accept new claims for Housing Benefit if you live in one of the following postcode areas: 

From 29 November 2017:-  S18, S40 3, S41 0, S41 9 and S42 7. 

From 13 June 2018:-  DE55, S42 5, S42 6, and S45. 

From 11 July 2018:-  S21 1, S21 2, S21 3, S21 4, S21 5, S43 3 and S44.

If you live in one of those areas you should use this form to claim Council Tax Reduction only from North East Derbyshire District Council and you will need to claim Universal Credit from the Department for Work and Pensions for your housing costs (exceptions apply).  If you have three or more dependant children living with you, you can still claim Housing Benefit.  If you are of pensionable age you can still claim Housing Benefit.   If you would like to check your pensionable age please click this link  State Pension Age Check 

For information about Universal Credit and to check whether you are eligible please visit the DWP website.
