Benefits and support The money we count when we work out Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support

Why do we need so many details about your money?

Housing Benefit is to help you pay your rent if you have a low income.

Council Tax Support can reduce your Council Tax if you have a low income.

The amount of help you get depends partly on how much income and savings you have.

This is why we ask you so many detailed questions about your income and savings. It's also why we ask you to provide evidence of what you tell us about your income and savings.
