If you ignore a Liability Order
Deductions from your benefits
We can apply to take money from the following benefits:
- Employment and Support Allowance
- Income Support
- Jobseeker’s Allowance
- Pension Credit Guaranteed Credit
We’ll ask the Department for Work and Pensions to deduct money from your benefit. This is a set amount and it'll be taken from your benefit until your debt is paid. This amount deducted increases every year.
We can’t currently apply to take money from Universal Credit. If you receive Universal Credit, contact us to make an arrangement to pay your Council Tax.
