We have made a payment of up to £150 to your Council Tax account if you:
- are entitled to Council Tax Reduction (also known Council Tax Support or Council Tax Benefit) and,
- are treated as a working age household
You do not need to apply for this. We make the payment automatically and it is adjusted if your Council Tax liability changes.
If your liability goes down, we may reduce the hardship payment. If your liability goes up, we will increase the hardship payment, but only up to £150 for the 2020/2021 financial year.
You will receive a new bill from us when we have done this which will show the payment included in your Council Tax Reduction amount.
If you are of working age and become entitled to Council Tax Support during the year, we will automatically make the same hardship payment.
