Housing/Council Tax Benefit

The Government have made several changes to various benefits including housing benefit which came into force from the 1st April 2016. Please click here for more details.

If you are on low income, or in receipt of certain state benefits, you may be eligible to claim Housing Benefit to help you pay your rent or Council Tax. Even if you do not qualify for help with all your rent or Council Tax, depending on who lives in your house and the household income, you may be entitled to some assistance.

You can check your eligibility on North Lanarkshire Council's on-line calculator.

If you have any questions on your eligibility you can get help and advice at the Council's nearest 'First Stop Shop'.
