Council Tax

Severely Mentally Impaired People

A person may receive a discount if they suffer from permanent severe impairment of intelligence and social functioning. For example Alzheimer's Disease and similar illnesses.

They will need a certificate from their doctor or medical practitioner with knowledge of their illness. As well as this, they must also be entitled to receive one of a number of benefits, including:

  • certain invalidity pensions
  • disability allowances
  • unemployability allowance or
  • attendance allowance.
