Benefit backdating rules

There are limits as to how far back we can go and these time limits start from when we receive your request for backdated benefit.Backdating - Housing Benefit - Working Age With effect from 1 April 2016, the maximum period for which Housing Benefit claims may be backdated for working age claimants reduces from six months to one month.

Your claim will automatically be backdated for a maximum of 3 months depending on your circumstances. From April 2016 you can apply for backdated benefit for a maximum period of 1 month depending on your circumstances.

There are no formal time limits on making a backdate request, but the maximum period that a benefit claim can be backdated is 6 months In order for a claim to be backdated we must be satisfied that: You will need to show continuous good cause for not claiming earlier and we must be satisfied that your circumstances, during this time were such that any reasonable person of your age and experience would also have failed to claim benefit.

You have to prove "good cause" but we must take account of all the facts of your case.

If we have decided that you have not shown "good cause" and that we cannot backdate your claim, the reasons for this will be explained in our letter.

You will then have the right of revision or appeal against our decision not to backdate your claim.

This must be made within one calendar month starting from the day after the date of our letter telling you we have not backdated your claim.

Housing benefit and Local Housing Allowance are normally paid from the Monday after we receive your claim, however, claims can sometimes be backdated to start from an earlier date.For HB and CTS we normally start your claim from the Monday after you first made contact with us or the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), but only if you return a properly completed claim form within one month of us issuing it.If the form is not returned in that time, the claim will start from the Monday after we get your claim form.Read the instructions the rules on backdating benefit below.We can backdate HB or CTS if you can prove that there is good cause or reason(s) why you were unable to apply for your benefit earlier.This only applies if you (or your partner) are not in receipt of Jobseekers Allowance, Income Support, or Employment and Support Allowance.
