Discretionary Housing Payment
What happens next?
Before you start your application, gather all your evidence and check you have everything you need. If you have missing information or the form is not fully completed, your application will be closed with no further action being taken.
As a minimum, you must provide:-
- the most recent 2 months bank statements for any bank, building society account or post office account that you hold
- if you receive Universal Credit (UC) you will also need to provide your most recent UC statement, which provides a full breakdown of how your Universal Credit has been calculated.
Note that Discretionary payments are usually considered from the Monday following the day we receive your application. Therefore, please make sure you send in your UC award that includes that date.
Your application will not be considered without them.
