Second Adult Rebate

Second Adult Rebate is help with your Council Tax bill if you are a pensioner and you share your home with one or more adults who are not your partner.

Is the person who shares your home:

  • aged 18 or over?
  • not your partner?
  • not paying you rent?
  • not liable to pay Council Tax themselves?

If you can answer yes to all, and you yourself are a pensioner, then you may qualify for Second Adult Rebate

Second Adult Rebate is based on the circumstances of the person who shares your home. Your income and savings will not have an effect on Second Adult Rebate. If you are entitled to Council Tax Benefit and Second Adult Rebate we will pay the one which gives you the most money.
