What Benefits can I claim with this form?

You can use this  application e-form to make a claim for:

  • Housing Benefit
  • Council Tax Support

Second Adult rebate is an alternative to the Council Tax Support Scheme. You can claim where there is a 2nd Adult living in the property with you who is not your partner and is in receipt of a low income.

However, entitlement will not be based on your circumstances. For more informaton about Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support please visit: www.birmingham.gov.uk/housingbenefit and www.birmingham.gov.uk/counciltaxsupport


You will only need to claim Housing Benefit if you :

  • Live in Supported Accomodation
  • Are of pension Age or
  • Are in receipt of a Severe Disability premium.

If you are receiving Universal Credit you will still need to make a new claim for Council Tax Support.
