In exceptional circumstances, if you have good reason for failing to claim earlier, we may be able to backdate your entitlement to reduction from the date we receive your application form.
From 1st April 2016, the Government's rules for late Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction claims have changed and are more strict for working age claimants:
We will look at your claim and notify you of our decision.
Ignorance of the rules do not count as a valid reason and it is not enough just to prove that you had a low income during the time you want to claim for.
