Authority to discuss - benefits
We will only share details of your Benefits claim with someone else if you have told us we can.
If someone is helping with your claim and you are happy for us to share information with them, you can let us know by filling in our Authority to discuss housing benefits and council tax support online form below.

If you have already filled out an Authority to Discuss form but it was over a year ago, we might ask you for a new form even if the person you want us to talk to hasn’t changed. This is so we can be sure you are still happy for us to talk to that person.
If you have filled out an Authority to Discuss form for another service, you will still need to do one for Benefits. This is so we can be sure you want us to talk to the person about Benefits as well as the other service.
Further information, help and support
For details of organisations who can give you advice about money matters and help you apply for benefits, see Live Well money matters.
If you require any further information – Contact the Benefits team.
