Changes in your circumstances can affect your Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support, so you must tell us straight away if things change.
Why you must report changes
For Housing Benefit claims, if you don't tell us within one month of the change, you may only get an increase in your benefit from when you tell us about it - so you could lose out on extra benefit.
But if you don't tell us about a change and you get too much benefit, you'll have to repay it and could be fined or taken to court.
What you have to tell us is different depending on whether you get Pension Credit or not.
Check with us if you're not sure which changes to tell us about.
