Benefits and how to apply

The Revenues & Benefits service administers claims for Housing Benefit on behalf of the Department for Work & Pensions. The service also administers the Discretionary Housing Payment scheme.

Housing Benefit is a means tested benefit for tenants to help meet their rental liability.

Council Tax Support is available to help people on low incomes to meet their Council Tax liability.

All applications for Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support should be made online using our online portal. If you wish to claim both benefits you need only complete one application. 

If you are unable to access the website or have additional needs, we can supply a paper form from our Contact Burnley offices on Parker Lane, Burnley. If you apply online we may be able to process your application faster than if you apply using a paper form providing you supply the necessary evidence.

Discretionary housing payments are intended to help claimants who are receiving housing benefit but the amount they are receiving does not cover the full rent they are charged.
