Benefits to Support Living Costs

The following benefits are related to income and are means tested.  The social security system in England is complicated and we recommend contacting one of the following organisations if you need support with your finances:

Community Law Northants - https://www.communitylawservice.org.uk/

Citizens Advice - https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/

Accommodation Concern - https://www.accommodationconcern.co.uk/

Universal Credit is now coming in and replacing many of the previous benefits, amalgamating them into one claim.  This is impacting the following benefits:·      
- Child Tax Credit
- Housing Benefit      
- Income Support      
- Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)      
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)      
- Working Tax Credit 

Council Tax Reduction
 

Use the link below to see if you are eligible to qualify for a council tax reduction.

There are a number of reasons as to why you may get a reduction, including what benefits you are already on, where you live and your savings.  It is also possible to get a reduction in band if you have a room that is adapted or specifically required for the use of a disabled person.
