Hello, does anyone know if a rate rebate is available in N Ireland? We still have a rating system over here. I checked the local council website but it gives little information. Apparently you must be on Universal Credit first to get anything.
Some ratepayers may be able to get a 25 per cent discount in their rates if they’ve suitably changed a property to meet the needs of an adult or child with permanent disabilities who lives in the household.
Ratepayers aged 70 or over who live alone may be entitled to 20 per cent discount on their rates. Tenants and homeowners are eligible for Lone Pensioner Allowance (LPA). Your social security benefits should not be affected because the allowance is not means-tested.
which is age related with no need to be in receipt of any benefit
