You may be able to claim second adult rebate if you have to pay Council Tax and you live with someone else, other than your partner or dependant child. The other person must be 18 or over, not responsible for paying Council Tax, not paying rent, and have a weekly income below £252.50 - they cannot be 'disregarded' when we work out whether you can get a Council Tax discount.
To claim second adult rebate, you have to give information about the income of the adult, or adults, living with you. Your own income and capital are not taken into account for second adult rebate. While you receive second adult rebate you must tell us immediately, in writing, if a partner or spouse moves in with you, or if the adult (or adults) you are claiming for changes income or moves out.
