Providing evidence for housing benefit and council tax support

Proof of other benefits

This includes any benefits, state retirement pension or tax credits that you, your partner or non-dependant get.
In most cases we can get information about other benefits such as income support, state retirement pension, and tax credits from the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP).
If you or your partner have applied for a benefit from DWP (such as Jobseekers Allowance / Employment & Support Allowance) but it has not yet been awarded, then please provide a written statement telling us how you are meeting your daily living expenses.

Income support, employment support allowance and jobseekers allowance

If you/your partner get Income Support, Income Related Employment & Support Allowance, or Income Based Jobseekers Allowance, you do not need to provide evidence of income. If you are waiting to hear about a claim for Income Support, Income Related Employment & Support Allowance, or Income Based Jobseekers Allowance, you must provide evidence of income and tell us how you are meeting your daily living expenses.
