How to Apply for Pensioner Council Tax Reduction
To request a pensioner council tax reduction, contact your local council. They will inquire about your earnings, savings, and outlays to determine how much council tax you should pay.
Mention any benefits you receive, such as income support or pension credit, as this may impact your application.
Documents such as pay stubs, bank statements, and information about your rent must be provided. Your council might also request benefits documentation, such as your job seeker’s allowance or pension credit.
Let’s say you’re asking for a reduction for people with disabilities. In that case, you’ll need to present proof of your disability, such as a letter from your doctor, a letter granting you a personal independence payment or disability living allowance, or both.
