Check In, Cash Out: Spotlight on Council Tax

Thu 21st April 2022

Did you know that people in receipt of council tax reduction can qualify for support with rising energy bills?

Our partner Age Scotland wants to end pensioner poverty by ensuring that everyone has access to the benefits they are entitled to.  If you might be eligible, Age Scotland’s helpline on 0800 12 44 222 is here to offer you help and advice. There is also a great deal of information on the Age Scotland website HERE.  

You can claim Council Tax Reduction whether you own or rent your home and regardless of whether you are working, unemployed, retired or a carer.

At least £400 million in benefits like Council Tax Reduction remain unclaimed by older people in Scotland each year and Age Scotland estimate that older people on lower incomes missed out on over £93m worth of Council Tax Reduction last year.

Check your eligibility with a call to Age Scotland’s free 0800 12 44 222 helpline.
