Council Tax Reduction rates for a single parent with two children

An example of how the Council Tax Reduction Scheme could work.

Rachel


Rachel is a single parent with two children. They live in a property which is in Band E for Council Tax. She is not working, and she receives Universal Credit of £363.91 per week.

Under the banded income scheme, the council will disregard the Housing Element of Universal Credit, which in her case is £150 per week:
£363.91 Universal Credit
 -150.00 Housing Element
£213.91 per week for the purpose of the banded income scheme.

She is in the income band 0 - £215, so she qualifies for 100% reduction under the banded income scheme. This is the same as she receives in the current scheme.
