You are claiming Second Adult Rebate (money off your bill if you live with someone on a low income who is not your partner, a joint-tenant or a joint-owner of the property): claim on an All benefits paper form. From 1 April 2014, only pension-age people can claim Second Adult Rebate. You can't claim it if you are working age.
You are only claiming free school meals or a secondary school clothing grant: claim on an Education benefits paper form.
Are you also going to claim Income Support, Job Seekers' Allowance, Employment Support Allowance or Pension Credit?
We (the Benefits Service) will send you a short form about help with your Council Tax.
NO: Go to Step 3.
