Apply for a discretionary payment
Don't delay. Apply as soon as you know you may not be able to pay your rent or Council Tax. We may only pay you from the time you apply.
Most people who apply for discretionary payments should complete the Discretionary Payment application form, but you'll need to complete a different form if:
- you have been affected by the benefit cap. (More information about the benefit cap) , or
- your home has been adapted for you or someone in your family because of a disability.
If you can't print a form out, we can send you one. You'll need to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You must say which DHP form you need us to send. Please also remember to include your name and address in the email.
Return the completed form to us at:
PO Box 3
We will write to you as soon as we can with a decision or to ask you for more information and evidence.
