PEOPLE in Redditch are being reminded about the deadline for making changes to their details if they are claiming benefits from the Borough Council.
As the authority prepares to run its end of year processing, computer systems will be unavailable for any changes to be made to customers’ details.
If residents receive housing benefit or council tax support, the team needs to know any changes before February 28 as no further changes can be made until after March 4.
Councillor Tom Baker Price, whose portfolio covers finance, said: “We want to make sure we have the most up-to-date, correct information about our customers so we can accurately assess and pay any relevant benefits to them.”
The Revenues Team can be contacted on 01527 534040 and the Benefits Team on 01527 534050.
