Just read on Martin's money tips that anyone living with a severe mental imparement which effects their social functioning and intelligence and Parkinsons was one of those mentioned, can be disregarded for council tax purposes! It covers a wide range of illnesses, so not just relevant for PSP/CBD? And any rebate can be claimed back as far as from 1993, even after the person with the imparement has passed away.
Does anyone else know about this?
I have just rang my council and asked for an application form for DISCOUNTED council tax for going forward and then I will ask it to be backdated to 2013, when my husband was first diagnosed. This apparently is not means tested.
It is yet another thing that we might be able to claim but is hidden from us!
I hope you all get on to your local councils.
Good old Martin Lewis
