Note that the introduction of Universal Credit for working age claimants from 23rd November 2015 within the Derbyshire Dales will gradually see working age claimants stop receiving Housing Benefit and instead claim assistance with their housing costs with a single Universal Credit payment.
Someone who is of pensionable age can continue to claim Housing Benefit with the District Council.
It is paid in addition to child benefit and you do not have to be working to get it.
Tax credits are administered by HM Revenue & Customs.
There are two tax credits – child tax credit and working tax credit.
