Who can use this service
To claim a DCTSHP you must usually be receiving Council Tax Support.
You can't claim a DCTSHP if you have reached pensionable age - the amount of Council Tax Support you can claim as a pensioner is greater than that for someone of working age.
When you complete the form you will need to explain your circumstances and why a DCTSHP will help you.
Have the following information to hand to help you complete the form:
- your Council Tax Support/Housing Benefit claim reference number (this starts with an 8)
- evidence to support your claim.
Scanned documents or digital photos can be uploaded to your application to support your claim. Ensure all submissions are clear - if we are unable to make out any of the information you will need to resubmit the evidence which will delay your claim.
