Backdating claim who is andrew potts dating

Housing benefit can only be backdated in special circumstances.

You will need to show you had a continuing good reason for not claiming earlier and that the reason you did not claim continued for the whole time you are asking for your housing benefit to be backdated.

The insurer will either use your actual age or the age you are nearest to based on the birthday you’re closest to.

We will usually make an award of Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support from the Monday after we get your form.

If you receive Pension Credit, Income Support, income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, Universal Credit or income-related Employment and Support Allowance, and we get your form within one month of that application any Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support will start on the Monday after your Pension Credit, Income Support, income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, Universal Credit or income-related Employment and Support Allowance is awarded.

If we refuse your claim for backdating, we will send you details of how to appeal.
