Apply for Housing Benefit

There are changes to the way our benefits team are working at the moment, because of COVID-19. We cannot offer you a face to face appointment at this time - please use the forms available from the links on this page, or email benefits@rutland.gov.uk

If you are of working age you need to check to see if you should be claiming Universal Credit instead of Housing Benefit. This includes couples where at least one is working age

Please go to our Universal Credit page for more information.

If you can’t claim Universal Credit, please make an application for Housing Benefit. You can download a form below.
