Mixed Age Couples
A 'mixed-age couple' is where one is over the age for Pension Credit and the other is under.
From 15 May 2019, the age of the youngest member of a couple will determine whether they qualify for Housing Benefit and Pension Credit. In most cases this will mean the couple will need to claim Universal Credit instead.
Universal Credit does not include help towards paying your Council Tax. If you are on a low income and you wish to apply to reduce your Council Tax bill, please apply for Council Tax Support
