You can now view your housing benefit and local council tax support decision letters online.

To view your letters you need to register.

You can also register for online letters when you use any of our e-benefit forms by answering ‘Yes’ to the question ‘Do you wish to view your letters online?’. If you opt to view your letters online, you will need to give your email address and tell us your preferred method of contact is email.
