If you are currently claiming Housing Benefit or Council Tax Support you need to tell us that you are applying for or cancelling a single person discount this way:

Housing Benefit “Change in Circumstances”
Council Tax Support "Change in Circumstances" 

By law you must tell within 21 days of any change that may affect your entitlement to a single person discount. To falsely claim a discount is a criminal offence and we may prosecute.

You will need your Council Tax account number if you contact us.
