  1. Thanks for both your replies UB. I believe there are hundreds of thousands in the UK in the same position as me: not employed for many years - therefore never 'became unemployed' - and so ignored for benefits by the DWP for all that time. My largest overhead is council tax and I want to do something about it now.

  3. Thanks HB I don't understand your comment. You have linked to an article on council tax reduction, but are saying that you have not heard of it? My question: when councils process CTR claims, do they contact DWP to check PAYE earnings?
