What Second Adult Rebate is

Second Adult Rebate is help with your Council Tax bill if you share your home with one or more adults (not including your partner) who are on low incomes.

Second Adult Rebate is part of Council Tax Support

Who can apply

The person who lives with you must:

  • be aged 18 or over
  • not be your partner (a person you are married to, or a person you live with as if you are married to them)
  • not pay you rent
  • not need to pay Council Tax themselves
  • have a low income

Second Adult Rebate is based on the circumstances of the person who shares your home. Your income and savings will not have an effect.

How to apply
