If you are already receiving council tax reduction with us, and your circumstances have changed, this may affect the amount we pay you.
You need to tell us about changes as soon as they happen.
If your income goes up and you do not tell us about the change straight away, you will be paid too much CTR. When we find out about the change you will be asked to pay the money back.
What we need to know
You need to tell us if you, your partner, your non-dependant or dependant child:
start or stop receiving benefit payments
start or stop receiving pension payments
start or stop receiving tax credits
start or stop working
become a full-time student
leave school or education
have a change to the amount of income ie wage increase/decrease
have a change to the amount of savings, if you and your partners savings total over £6,000
are going to be away from your property for four weeks or more (you need to let us know before you go away). Please see the rules on temporary absence from your home
have someone move in or out of your household
have a new addition to your household, such as a new baby
We will normally need to see evidence of the change, upload a scanned image or digital photo of your documents to your change in circumstances form.
If the documents are not currently available, complete and submit the change in circumstances form and provide the scanned image or digital photo of your documents within one month using the providing additional documents form.
