Tell us something's changed

1. Overview

If you're getting Housing Benefit or a reduction in your Council Tax and something changes in your circumstances, you must let us know straight away. If you don't do this within a month you may lose your benefits. We will need to know details of any changes in writing and we'll need to see original documents.

Failure to report a change of circumstances that reduces your benefit entitlement is a criminal offence, and you may face prosecution.
