You can claim Housing Benefit as part of your application for other benefits.
How you apply for Housing Benefit depends on which benefit you’re applying for.
If you're living with the person you look after and they're awarded Personal Independence Payment (PIP), Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or Attendance Allowance (AA), complete a claim form for Carer's Allowance (CA) as soon as possible after the award has been made. You can make a claim by calling the Carer's Allowance Unit on 03, or by claiming Carer's Allowance online.
You can still make a new claim if you’re already getting other benefits.
Contact Jobcentre Plus to claim Housing Benefit along with your application for the following benefits: You usually can’t get Universal Credit and Housing Benefit at the same time (unless you’re in certain kinds of supported housing).
You can get help paying for housing with your Universal Credit payment instead. You can claim in advance by up to 13 weeks (or 17 weeks if you’re aged 60 or over), for example if you’re moving. You might also be able to get your claim backdated - ask your council.
You can ask your council for a Housing Benefit decision to be reconsidered.
If you’re unhappy with the response you can appeal the decision.
You must specifically request that your Carer's Allowance claim is backdated, and you must have satisfied all the rules for claiming Carer's Allowance during the backdating period.
