Council tax reduction

Pensioner scheme

Pension age customers are protected under our Council Tax Reduction Scheme.

Under the scheme, a Pensioner is someone who has attained the qualifying age for State Pension Credit and is not in receipt of Income Support, Jobseekers Allowance (Income-Based), Employment and Support Allowance (Income-Related) or Universal Credit.

Please note - for couples, where only the eldest has attained State Pension Credit age and the working age partner is in receipt of Income Support, Jobseekers Allowance (Income-Based), Employment and Support Allowance (Income-Related) or Universal Credit, the claim will be assessed under the Working Age Scheme.
