You should apply for housing benefit and / or council tax support as soon as you can.
If you didn’t manage to submit an application from the date you were entitled we may be able to backdate your claim.
You will need to state the reason you would like you claim to be backdated and explain the reason you were unable to apply earlier.
I am going to run through an example of a client that was approved for life insurance where we had the opportunity to backdate his premiums.
The client is a 64 year old man with a 65 year insurance birthday.
You will need to have had a good reason for not making your claim earlier.
Do you know anyone who has been able to save age in life insurance?
