Paying your rent if affected by Coronavirus

DATE PUBLISHED: 17.03.2020


Paying your rent if you are off sick or must self-isolate due to the Coronavirus  

The Government's Welfare Benefit system is designed to support people who are unable to work due to illness or disability or who need financial support for temporary periods of absence from work due to illness.

The Government is adapting this benefit system due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

The rules about which benefit a person can claim during a period of illness can be complicated and depend on an individual's personal circumstances, their household, capital and savings and their employment history.     

The following agencies can provide information and support about welfare benefits. We are also in the process of updating our website with further information.

The Department for Work and Pensions: www.gov.uk

The North East Derbyshire Citizen's Advice: Tel 0300 4568437 / www.nedcab.org.uk

Derbyshire Unemployed Worker's Centre:  Tel 01246 231441 / www.duwc.org.uk

Derbyshire County Council Welfare Rights Team : tel 01629 531535 : Monday-Tuesday and Thursday-Friday 11am-4pm or email; welfarebenefits@derbyshire.gov.uk

Tenants can apply for help with their Council Tax through the North East Derbyshire District Councils Council Tax Support scheme. The application form is online and can be found online at www.ne-derbyshire.gov.uk.
