How to send us proof to support your benefit claim
Sending proofs by email
The quickest and easiest way is to scan or photograph your proofs and send them as email attachments to email@example.com. These need to be clear enough for us to read.
Include your claim reference number in the subject of your email if you have one.
If you don't have a claim reference number, use your name, address and National Insurance number instead.
Other ways to provide proofs
If you don't have an email address, you can also give us proofs by:
- posting to Revenues and Benefits, Brighton and Hove City Council, PO box 2929, Brighton, BN1 1PS.
- visiting us at our Customer Service Centre, Bartholomew Square, Brighton, BN1 1JE where we're open Monday to Friday, 8.45am to 4.30pm apart from bank holidays.
If you send us any original proofs by post, for example a passport, we'll return it to you at the address you sent it from.
We can't take responsibility for proofs lost in the post, so please send originals by recorded delivery.
Proofs you need to provide
The proofs you need to send us depend on if you're changing your benefit claim or making a new one.
