Housing Benefit Award Accuracy Initiative

The Department for Work and Pensions initiated the Housing Benefit Award Accuracy Initiative in 2020, making it a requirement for all Local Authorities to conduct full claim reviews in respect of any Housing Benefit claims.

This means customers will be contacted to confirm whether the information we currently hold in respect of your household, your income and capital, and general financial circumstances are up to date and accurate to ensure you are receiving the right amount of Housing Benefit.

Use this section if you have been sent a letter in respect of the Housing Benefit Award Accuracy Initiative

On this page, you can complete the online review form and be able to upload any additional evidence that is required.

Before you start, you will need the following details with you when completing the online form: 

  • National Insurance number
  • Claim reference number
  • Full details of your income and expenditure
