Report a Change (Housing Benefit)

It's important that you tell us about any change in your circumstances that may affect your housing benefit.

If you don't tell us you may be committing a criminal offence which may result in prosecution and a criminal record.

It's better to report any changes immediately or you may lose your benefit:

Changes that will affect your housing benefit award:

  • Your income or your partner’s income goes up or down.
  • Your savings or your partner’s savings go up or down
  • You or your partner start or stop working.
  • Your benefits or your partner’s benefits change.
  • Anyone joins or leaves the household.
  • The income or capital of any non-dependant in your household changes.
  • The amount of rent you pay changes.
