Help with your housing costs

Universal Credit has now been rolled out to all new claimants in Dartford. This means that if you live in the Dartford Borough you will need to make a claim for your housing costs through Universal Credit, unless you:

  • Have reached State Pension age
  • Live in supported accommodation
  • Are in temporary accommodation placed by our Housing Options Team
  • Are currently in receipt of the Severe Disability Premium, or have been within the last month.

If you do fall into one of these categories please complete our online housing benefit claim form.

If you don't fall into one of these categories you will need to make a claim for housing costs through Universal Credit.
