Backdating - Local Council Tax Support: Outline

Normally the Council will start your claim from the Monday after the claim form is received.

The Council may be able to pay benefit from an earlier date if you are able to show that there was "good cause" for the delay in making your claim, throughout the whole period that you would like it to be backdated.

For more information on Housing Benefit and Local Council Tax Support, visit our Advice and Benefits section.
