I claim Housing Benefit. Do I need to do anything?
If your Housing Benefit is paid directly to you, then you will need to inform Housing Benefit of your rent before 1st April 2024 to make sure you receive the correct payments. To do this you will need to contact your Local Authority and ask to speak to the Housing Benefit department. If your Housing Benefit is paid directly to Onward, you do not need to take any action. Onward will inform Housing Benefit of your new rent.
