Housing and Council Tax Benefit Online Application
If you live in the Wyre Forest district and want to apply for
Housing Benefit or the Council Tax Discount Scheme, you now have
the option to use our online benefit application form.
Please read the following information carefully before you
- When you first open our benefit form, a short download of
special E-form software will occur. This software is needed to

possible to complete.
- Once you have completed the download you can fill in the whole
form offline. You don't have to fill it in all in one go and can
save an incomplete form on your computer and come back to it
- You can move back and forth through the form (see image

anything you have missed. You will also find the help and
submit buttons on the left hand side
