Are you receiving the correct amount of housing benefit?

Posted by on March 28, 2017 in Active & Supportive Communities | 0 comments

Dudley Council is continuing to roll out its campaign to encourage residents who receive housing benefit to keep the council up to date with changes that may affect their benefit and avoid penalties for incorrect claims.

The campaign, funded by the Department for Work & Pensions, runs until the end of March and highlights the types of changes to circumstances that can influence the amount of housing benefit or council tax reduction a person receives.

Anyone who receives either of these benefits has a legal responsibility to notify the council of a change in their circumstances.

See the media release for further information.
