Council Tax discounts

Pensioner age claims

Pensioner age claims are considered under a different scheme which is set by the government. Pensioners can receive a discount of up to 100%. You are classed as pension age, if you have reached the qualifying age for state pension credit or if you are a couple and one of you has reached the qualifying age for pension credit. However, you will not be classed as a pensioner if one of you receives;

  • income support
  • income based job seekers allowance
  • employment and support income related

You must continue to pay your Council Tax whilst your application is being considered.
