Housing Benefit reviews

From April 2022 Epsom & Ewell Borough Council will be carrying out Housing Benefit reviews in accordance with the Department for Work and Pensions Housing Benefit Award Accuracy Initiative.

This means customers will be contacted to confirm whether the information we currently hold in respect of your household, your income and capital, and general financial circumstances are up to date and accurate to ensure you are receiving the right amount of Housing Benefit.

If you have been contacted by the Benefit Section because your claim is being reviewed, you should complete the online review form linked below.

If you have been asked to provide evidence of your income from self-employment, you should submit your most recent set of accounts. If you do not have accounts, you should complete the self-employed income and expenditure form linked below.

Before you start, you will need the following details: 

  • National Insurance number
  • Claim reference number
  • Full details of your income and the income of any other adults in your household

Any evidence you provide should be provided digitally either by document upload where indicated on the online forms, or by email to benefits@epsom-ewell.gov.uk. Please do not send us original documents unless we specifically request them.
