Is it possible to backdate housing benefit?

Thank you

Yes in some circumstances but you would need to be able to provide evidence showing why you did not make the claim earlier.

It may have changed but I was told by the council that they will only backdate to the date that you claimed from unless you have evidence of a very good reason why you couldn't submit the claim earlier.
