Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction

Universal Credit Full Service is arriving in parts of Wolverhampton on 13th December 2017.  From this date some customers who are of working age will need to apply for the housing element of Universal Credit rather than Housing Benefit. 
Please visit the Postcode Checker to see if this change applies to you.  If the changes do apply to you, further information is available  www.universalcreditwolverhampton.co.uk
If you live in a post code area not affected by the changes please continue to apply for Housing Benefit on the link below.  It is important to remember that Universal Credit is not designed to assist with Council Tax.  If you are on a low income and you wish to apply for help with your Council Tax please apply on the link below.
