Register to view your benefits online
Before you start
You will need to provide us with some information to confirm your identity.
You can supply any combination of elements from the list below, as long as together they make up a combined score of at least 10. Individual scores for each one are listed in brackets:
- date of the last Housing Benefit payment issued (7)
- amount of the last Housing Benefit payment (7)
- National Insurance Number-this is a mandatory field (5)
- Council Tax account number (4)
- your surname (2)
- your postcode (1)
- your date of birth (4)
If you are unable to supply the information needed to complete your registration you can request a PIN number. This will be posted to you, and you will need to wait until you receive it before you can access your online account.
Register to use the service
After registering you will be sent an email asking you to verify your account. Once your account has been verified you will only need your username and password to log in to your Self-Service account.
Note: You are able to register to use more than one of our online services (Benefits, Council Tax, Business Rates or Landlord), but you will need to answer different security questions, or enter a new PIN, for each one.
For more information please see our registration guide:
