Manchester City Council

Benefits & support Claim benefits

If you live in a Universal Credit area you may now need to claim help with your rent though Universal Credit. But you still claim help with Council Tax from us.

Check if you live in a Universal Credit area.  See more about what to do if you live in a Universal Credit area.

If you are not in a Universal Credit area use our online form to claim both these benefits at the same time:

  • Housing Benefit
  • Council Tax Support

If you already claim and something has changed tell us about it online and we'll amend your benefit or tell you what to do next.

We don't help with Free School Meals. See how to get them.
