When Bracknell Forest Council launched a digital service to allow residents to handle housing benefit and council tax discount claims online, it was inundated with people who wanted to create an account.

- log-in using their Facebook, Google or Microsoft account,
- open a claim and view current data online,
- including payments made, payment dates and reductions.
