Important Information about Universal Credit
If you are of working age and were intending to make a new claim for housing benefit, you may now be required to claim help towards your housing costs as part of your Universal Credit claim.
You will NOT be able to claim for help with your council tax as part of your Universal Credit claim. You MUST make a separate claim to East Lothian Council for this.
You can make a claim for council tax reduction online.
