Who can claim Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction?

Who can claim Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction?

  • Anyone who has to pay council tax can claim Council Tax Reduction
  • Anyone who has to pay rent can claim Housing Benefit

In some cases, even though someone has to pay rent/council tax, they are not always entitled to either Housing Benefit or Council Tax Reduction, for example some categories of students.

If you have capital/savings over £16,000 you will not qualify for Housing Benefit and/or Council Tax Reduction unless you are aged 60 or over and receiving Guarantee Pension Credit.
