Council Tax Support Deductions

Pensioners

The rates of non dependant deductions are determined by central government. If you or your partner are over pension credit age and not in receipt of Income based ESA or Income Support and in receipt of a Council Tax Support reduction then the following rate of non dependant deduction will apply to you:

April 2020 rates

Gross weekly income of non dependantDeduction from Council Tax reduction
Gross income: £469.00 or more£12.40
Gross income: £377.00 to £468.99£10.35
Gross income: £217.00 to £376.99£8.25
Gross income: less than £217.00£4.05

These rates are decided by the Government. The new rates will be published here.

If you or your partner are over 65 and a non dependant moves in with you, we will not make deductions for the first 26 weeks. However you must still tell us that they have moved in.

Again, if you or your partner are aged over 65, if you already have a non dependant living with you and their income increases we will not increase the amount of deduction for 26 weeks from the date of change. The new deductions will be based on the non dependant's income at the end of the 26 weeks period. Again you must still tell us about the change and any other changes during that period.

We will not make a Council Tax Support deduction if your non dependant is:

  • Under 18
  • Receiving pension credit
  • Receiving a youth training allowance
  • A full time student (but we will take deduction if they work in the holidays, and when they are between courses)
  • In prison
  • Usually living elsewhere.
  • Receiving income support, job seekers allowance (income based) or employment and support allowance (income related).

You must tell us about any changes in circumstances.
