Benefit Calculator and Claim

You can use this form to apply for a Council Tax Support if you pay Council Tax to Blackpool Council.
You can also use this form to apply for Housing Benefit, if:

  • You pay rent in the area covered by Blackpool Council, and
  • You are a pensioner (and your partner if you have one is a pensioner), or
  • You (and your partner if you have one) receive Severe Disability Premium (SDP) and haven't received Universal Credit in the last 6 months, or
  • You live in a hostel, refuge, sheltered housing or a supported living complex.

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.
