Housing Benefit Accuracy - you've received a review form
The Housing Benefit Award Accuracy is a new initiative from the Department for Work & Pensions (DWP) to ensure awards of Housing Benefit are correct, and that those who are entitled, get the right amount. We might have recently sent you a form to review your entitlement.
The Housing Benefit Award Accuracy initiative is funded by Department for Work & Pensions requiring Runnymede Benefits department to undertake mandated activities to identify unreported changes of circumstances. The mandated activities are:
- HB Full Case Reviews
- HB Matching Service referrals, including: - self-employed Earnings Reviews
Full Case Review (FCR)
Starting in October 2020, we will receive part of a list of the top 400,000 Housing Benefit cases identified nationally by risk score. The risk model predicts the probability of you having had a change of circumstances.
Runnymede Borough Council then select the highest scoring cases identified by the DWP risk score.
A FCR means we need you to complete a short claim form and supply all your current details and evidence in order for your Housing Benefit entitlement to be checked and if necessary re-determined.
The easiest way to complete the form and send your evidence, is by scanning and e-mailing it to email@example.com
