Use OpenPortal to see your account information online.

You can access information about your:

  • Council Tax
  • Housing Benefit
  • Council Tax Support

Your account information has details about the payments sent to you, when your next payment is due and what your rates are.


If we currently pay you Housing Benefit directly for your tenant/s you can view a summary of their award (not their personal financial circumstances) and a breakdown of recently issued payments. You can also see any Council Tax or Business rates accounts in your name.

If you had an OpenAccess account before, you can use the same login credentials.
