Benefits - Reviews

Service Description: Since April 2004 an award of Housing Benefit lasts indefinitely. This means benefit awards run continuously without the need for you to regularly fill in a renewal form. Instead there is a system of checks to ensure that the information held is up to date.

Checks are carried out by the following methods:
Cross-checking of information with other agencies such as the Inland Revenue, Department of Work and Pensions etc.
Visits by council staff to you in your own home
Postal reviews
Review forms (these are shortened versions of the application form, specifically designed for these checks)

There is, however still a legal requirement for you and your landlord to inform us of any changes in circumstances which may affect your entitlement to benefit.
