Council Tax Support Scheme
From 1 April 2013 Council Tax Benefit was replaced with Council Tax Support. Every council decides its own localised Council Tax Support Scheme to set how much discount people get in their total Council Tax. This is reviewed on a yearly basis.
You can claim Council Tax Support if you are on a low income and have less than £16,000 savings.
You cannot claim if you have more than £16,000 savings, (unless you are getting Guarantee pension credit) are subject to immigration control or do not have the right to live in the UK.
You must make a claim through your local authority. Please check their website on how to claim. There is usually an online application form for you to do this.
