Benefits - Change Of Address

If you are already claiming Housing Benefit and/or Council Tax Support and you are changing address within the Local Authority area for example already claiming for an address in Poole and moving to another address in Poole please complete the change of address form.

Please note that if you move from being resident in another Local Authority area to Poole you should complete a new claim form for Housing and/or Council Tax Support.
