Benefits & support Claim Council Tax Support

If you need help paying your Council Tax, you can claim Council Tax Support using our online claim form. We’ll also check if you can get Housing Benefit so you can apply for both at the same time and only have to fill the form in once.

If you claim Universal Credit, you'll need to apply separately for Council Tax Support. See what to do if you live in a Universal Credit area.

If you are pension-age we will use your details to work out if you would be better off getting second adult rebate instead. Read more about second adult rebate.

We need your details and those of anyone else you live with. Don’t worry if you don’t have all the information now - you can save the form and come back to it later.

You may be entitled to a Council Tax reduction. See if you can get money off your council tax bill.

Most students won’t need to claim because they are usually exempt from Council Tax or get a reduction. See money off council tax for students and people who live with students.
