We are carrying out a consultation with residents to get their views on proposed changes to the Council Tax Support Scheme for 2018/19.
Council tax support is currently provided to around 14,000 households in North Lincolnshire at an annual cost of approximately £9m. This includes pension and working age households.
Currently working age households in receipt of council tax reduction support (previously Council Tax Benefit) receive up to 77 per cent of their council tax bill supported through the reduction.
Under the new proposals for 2018/19, working age households who are in receipt of disability benefits will be protected at the same level. Other working age households will receive a discount of up to 50 per cent on their annual council tax bill.
Pension age households will not be affected by the proposed changes and eligible households will continue to receive up to 100 per cent discount.
Have your say on the proposed changes
The consultation will run from 8 September to 10 November 2017.
