Help for Hackney residents

15th Aug 2022

If you are a Hackney resident who pays for your Council Tax by direct debit, you will have automatically received your Council Tax rebate if you were entitled to it.

This would’ve been:

  • £150 for properties in bands A-D and £180 for those on Council Tax Reduction.
  • £150 for properties in bands E-H in receipt of Council Tax Reduction.
  • An extra £75 for pensioners on Council Tax Reduction.

If you don’t pay your Council Tax by direct debit, you will need to apply for the Council Tax Rebate at hackney.gov.uk/ct-rebate

It takes less than five minutes to complete the online form and then once approved, the cash payment will go directly to your bank account within 14 days. We know a lot of Hackney residents are struggling financially, so we really don’t want anyone to miss out. The funding isn’t available forever, so we’re encouraging everyone to apply ASAP. 

If you are struggling to access the webpage hackney.gov.uk/ct-rebate or if you do not have digital access, please phone 0208 356 3111 Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm and Hackney officers will be happy to assist taking applications over the phone.
