You can manage your benefits claim online by creating a portal account. The portal gives you full access to your benefits claim where you can check the status of your claim, see your current entitlement and how it was been calculated and see past and future housing benefit payments.

To register for an account, you will need your account name, email address, benefit claim reference number and your national insurance number.

If you have already registered for an account, you will be able to log in using your existing username and password.
