Applying online at the council

Free self-service computers are available at the council offices (135 Eastern Avenue, Milton Park, OX14 4SB), where you can go online to apply for benefits. Our customer advisers can show you how to use the online service if you need any help.

We can only normally award benefit from the Monday after your claim has been received so don't delay - send off your application today!  In some cases benefit may be backdated.  You can find out about backdating benefit from our website.  For information on other forms and guidance notes.
