Benefit Calculator and Claim

If you live in the area covered by Durham County Council, you can use this application to:

  • see how much Housing Benefit you could get if you rent your home
  • see how much Council Tax Reduction you could get if you are the person who is responsible for paying the Council Tax for the home you live in
  • find out if you're entitled to Income Support, Pension Credit or Tax Credits

The application is in two parts. The first is a calculator which can give you an idea of what you may be entitled to. The second part allows you to make a claim.
