I hope everyone had a fruitful Carers Week. Hopefully this is the final update of this Council tax. All I can say that there is an upside to all of this palaver. Further knowledge. I was not aware of the discount on your water bill if you are struggling financially. Water help and Watersure, you sho...

Hi everyone, Just an update on this Council Tax situation. They (CT) emailed me to give me a breakdown of their calculation. To cut it short and spare the details. "There are certain incomes that we disregard in full and certain incomes that we disregard in part or a portion of." Any reduction is ba...
Hi Melly1, We always had council tax relief because of my brother. He lives with me and in receipt of DLA and ESA. I am unemployed and receive IS and carers allowance. As for savings (if you could call it that ) is well under the threshold of £6,000. Access to online with the HB is an issue in itsel...

Extremely busy with loads of things happening at the same time. It doe...

I'm already an appointee in regards to benefits. Does this needs to be drawn up officially by a solicitor. Un...
Hi All, I really do hope everyone is keeping as well as they can. After a change of circumstance I contacted the Carers Allowance benefits department. They immediately suspended payment. Change of circumstance was back to how it was before and CA was reinstated. I did not expect any backpayment ( an...
Hi Melly1 and everyone else, Well my brother contacted covid early this month and he is asymptomatic. The fact that he had been there for some time did not make it easier for me. He was admitted without covid. I kind of lost it and sent an email (in 2 parts after talking to my sister) to PALS. I am ...
