Depending on the number of people in your household, this form could take 15 minutes or more to complete.

We'll ask you questions about yourself and anyone who lives with you.

The information we need includes:

  • National Insurance numbers and bank details
  • information about employment and earnings
  • benefits or allowances you receive
  • details of any savings you have, including pensions

If you rent your home from a housing association or private landlord, you'll also need to fill in a tenancy details form.
