Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit/ Universal Credit
We advise tenants to apply for Unversal Credit when first signing their tenancy agreement in order to have your housing costs met if you are on low income. If you are already in receipt of housing benefit when moving a Copperworks Housing Association property you should complete a Change of Circumstances form to move your housing benefit over to your new address.
You may also be entitled to help with your Council Tax costs and we would encourage you to apply where applicable. Forms are available from the office and staff are more than happy to help with completing the forms.
Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit entitlements are calculated by Glasgow City Council Financial Services.
