As part of the government’s policy that pensioners should be protected under localised Council Tax support, certain premia, allowances and non-dependant deductions were set at the level they would have been under Council Tax benefit in 2013 to 2014. This document sets out the up-rate premia, allowances and non-dependant deductions, in respect of pensioners, for 2014 to 2015 and on an annual basis thereafter.
