for benefit. Your benefit will be calculated based on the
- Your capital, including any savings (if you and/or your partner
have over £16,000 you will not qualify).

Even if your income is high if you share a house with other
adults (except for a partner) who have low incomes you may be able
to claim council tax second adult rebate. Many people lose benefit
because they delay making a claim. Benefit can not normally be
backdated, so don’t delay - complete an application
