Making a claim for Council Tax Support

Find out if you are entitled to help with your Council Tax

You could get Council Tax Support to help you pay your Council Tax if you are on a low income. How much you are entitled to depends on your income and circumstances and the amount you get can pay for part or all of your Council Tax.  

More information can be found in our Council Tax Support policy.

Please remember that any delay in claiming will mean that you may lose out on support to which you may have been entitled.

How to make a claim
You will need to complete an online application form and provide the original documents asked for on the form. If you do not, your claim may be delayed and we may not be able to pay you support.

When your claim has been assessed and all your details verified, we will write to you with a decision. If you have not heard from us within 21 days of making your claim, please contact us immediately to check we have received it and that we are not waiting for any other information.
