When you claim Farm Household Allowance (FHA), we’ll ask you for some documents to support your claim.
You don’t need to give us a bank statement or proof of your rental arrangement. This is due to coronavirus (COVID-19). We’ll let you know when you need to again.
What documents you’ll need
As you complete your FHA claim we’ll ask you to provide us with certain documents or information. Any documents you must provide will appear as required in your claim.
If you don’t give us these documents you can’t submit your claim. Having them ready before you start your claim will help you finish your claim and not delay the process.
Other documents you may need
You may need to give us other documents. These will appear as supplementary in the claim. You don’t have to provide these documents straight away. You’ll have 14 days after you submit your claim to submit them.
We may ask you for further information as we work through your claim and assess your circumstances. If this happens, we’ll put your claim on hold. If you don’t give us the documents within 14 days of our request we may reject your claim.
What documents you might need
We've listed the documents and information we usually ask for. You may not need all of them.
