Landlords and their tenants who receive housing benefit are being directed to Eastleigh Borough Council’s online portal to stay up to date with their payment details.
From 1 June 2022 the Council will no longer be sending payment schedules to landlords by post or email. Instead, they are being asked to register for the online portal where, among a number of useful functions, they can view their schedules, next payment amounts and individual tenants’ entitlement details.
Housing benefit is a regular council payment for people on a low income or claiming benefits. Claimants can also use the online portal if they register for a MyEastleigh account and add Housing Benefits as a service. This allows them to see all aspects of their claim, from the details the Council holds about them, to their next payment amount.
