SSP and council tax deduction

I’m currently off sick and I’m getting paid at the moment but when I get SSP will I get a council tax deduction. I won’t be going back to work I don’t think.

    HI and welcome,

    Claiming council tax reduction will depend on your circumstances such as household income and who you live with. As all local councils have their own criteria then i won't be able to advise you on this and you'll need to apply with your local council.

    Hi @Rosie1966 and welcome to the Community also from me.  It is nice to meet you.  I'm really sorry to hear too that you are currently off sick and may not return to work.  I hope you have found Poppy's advice to be helpful and hope the council can give you some information about a council tax reduction.  Please keep in touch and let us know how you get on.  If there is anything further we can help/support you with then please just let us know.  All the best.  :smile:
