Before using an online calculator to see how much Council Tax Support you may get to reduce your Council Tax payments
check that the following statements apply to you.
- You are responsible for paying Council Tax for the home that you live in and
- You and your partner must be on a low income – this could be from benefits, pensions or earnings and
- If you are working age, you or your partner must have total money (for example savings, capital, cash) of less than £8,000 (working age is below the age to claim Pension Credit) or
- If you are pension age, you or your partner must have total money (for example savings, capital, cash) of less than £16,000 (pension age is above the age to claim Pension Credit). If you are getting Guaranteed Pension Credit then the £16.000 limit does not apply to you
