Changes happening to you and the people you live with

Once you start receiving housing benefit or a council tax reduction, you must tell us about any changes happening to you and the people you live with. Small changes can affect the amount of benefit or council tax reduction that you’re entitled to.

You must tell us of any changes in writing or in person. Our address is on this form:

Delay in telling us about a change in your circumstances can lead to loss of benefit.

Trying to get more benefit than you are entitled to, by giving false information or by failing to tell us about a change of circumstance, can lead to prosecution.
