Online benefit details for landlords
You can now have online access to your tenants’ Housing Benefit payment details which are paid directly to you using our E Citizen self service facility.
To be able to use our on-line services you must register yourself as an E-Citizen.
Your E-Citizen identity is the user name and password that you give us when you register.
You can register to use any or all of our on-line services but you only need to register as an e-Citizen once and then request and enter PIN(s) for each service that you require. Other services available in addition to Benefits are Council Tax and Business Rates.
Once you have selected a service and requested a PIN a letter will be sent to your address with a pin number and instructions on how to access your benefit details.
What can you see when you use E-Citizen?
- Authorised Claim list
- Claim Summary Screen for your tenant
- Housing Benefit awards
- Next payment and previous payment details
- Any outstanding invoices
