Council Tax reminders
People may be receiving reminders to make outstanding payments, and we are keen to
raise awareness that there is plenty of help available to support people to meet costs.
Our benefit calculator shows that Council Tax Support is one of the most underclaimed
benefits, but there’s also other help available,
and there’s further information on reduction schemes here; please encourage people
you may be working with to contact us if they need advice.

Benefits reminder
We continue to remind people that before applying for Universal Credit, they should
always check if they are eligible for New Style JSA or ESA – see our short video here. If
people are already in receipt of benefits like Tax Credits they should seek advice from
us before putting in a claim to ensure they don’t miss out on income.
Take a look at our benefit calculator.
