Housing Benefit

Housing Benefit appeals

If you disagree with our decision about your Housing Benefit entitlement you can:

  • ask for a further explanation
  • ask us to consider changing our decision

You must:

  • make your appeal in writing using the Housing Benefit appeal form
  • state the specific reason for your appeal
  • submit your appeal within a month of our decision date
  • provide the necessary evidence with your appeal form

Our Housing Benefit appeal form includes a guide on asking for more details, and how to appeal.

The Independent Tribunals Service will hear your appeal.

If we made our decision more than a month ago and you ask us to look at it again or you appeal, you can make a late request, but it may not be considered.

If you need help to appeal against your decision contact a local advice service for assistance.
