Apply for Council Tax Support

To apply for Council Tax Support you will need to:

When should I apply?

You should apply as soon as you think you may be entitled to help. It is important that your application form is handed in as soon as possible, if you delay you may lose out.

When will the award start?

We should pay your award within 14 days of getting all the information we need to work out your award. However, applications are often delayed because we are waiting for information.

We can normally only pay your award from the Monday following the date we receive your application. We can treat your application as being made from the date you ask for a form from us if we receive your fully completed application form within one month of sending it to you.

If entitled, we will send you a revised Council Tax bill reduced by your Council Tax Support award.
