Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support can be claimed by completing a single application form

Please note that if you download an application form we suggest that you also contact us at benefits@north-norfolk.gov.uk or call 01263 516349 to let us know you are making a claim.

If you would like us to post you this form please contact us. Alternatively either claim form can be obtained by visiting our Cromer or Fakenham offices.

In most circumstances a claim for Housing Benefit/Council Tax Support or Alternative Maximum Benefit will begin from the Monday after you told us that you are making a claim provided that a completed form is received within one month of that date. Otherwise benefit will begin the following Monday when we have received your completed application form.
