9. I’m moving house….
You need to let us know as soon as possible - this may even be before you move.
A change of address may cause changes to your entitlement and you may be overpaid benefit that you then have to pay back. To avoid this, call 01395 571770, email email@example.com or download and complete our Change of Address form and provide all requested evidence.
You can scan or photograph the completed form to email; please ensure any pictures are full, clear and legible.
You need to tell us about anything that could affect the amount of benefit that we pay you within
- one month for Housing Benefit
- 21 days for Council Tax Support.
Civil Penalties may apply if you do not tell us about changes in time.
