Housing Benefit Notice

Information about Housing Benefit payments between 5 November and 9 December 2018

The Council is changing its financial systems and as a result we will be unable to make payments of Housing Benefit between 5 November 2018 and 9 December 2018. 

To avoid hardship and other difficulties, your Housing Benefit award will be paid in advance for 5 weeks covering the period 5 November 2018 and 9 December 2018. 

Normal payments will resume from the week beginning 10 December 2018, although please note that a further advance payment will be made over the Christmas period.
