From 17 October 2018 Universal Credit is being rolled out within Huntingdonshire. This means you can only apply for Housing Benefit if you are: 1) of pensionable age 2) have more than two children living with you 3) live in exempt or certain specified accommodation 4) have been placed in temporary housing by the Council.
If you don’t fall into one of these groups you will need to make a claim for Universal Credit for help with your housing costs (rent payments).
If you want to claim Council Tax Support for help towards your Council Tax bill you will need to make a claim to the Council for this. Go to Council Tax Support page for more details
