Discounts for disabled people

People who are severely mentally impaired aren’t included when working out Council Tax.

You also aren’t included if you’re a live-in carer looking after someone who isn’t your partner, spouse, or child under 18.

Apply for a Council Tax discount.

Disabled Band Reduction Scheme

You may be eligible for the scheme if you live in a larger property than you would need if you or another occupant weren’t disabled.

You’ll have to show that you’ve either:

an extra bathroom, kitchen or other room that you need for the disabled person

extra space inside the property for using a wheelchair

The property must be the main home of at least 1 disabled person. This can be an adult or a child - it doesn’t have to be the person responsible for paying the Council Tax.

This is an excellent post . 1 thing that really annoys me is on a weekly basis its highlighted about benefit fraud which is less than 1% of the entire welfare budget .Unfortunately though the amount that goes unclaimed as people simply don't know about the benefit they are entitled to isn't been told to them . Well done on sharing this and making people aware of it .

I applied for this for my M in L, you do it through your Local council website, form was long but easy. Notification came through within 3 weeks - nothing to pay for 20/21 and they were refunding 6 weeks from 19/20 🙂
