Cyngor Sir Ynys Môn - Isle of Anglesey County Council

Cost of living support scheme


The scheme will be made up of 2 elements; a main scheme (related to certain Council Tax payers) and a discretionary scheme (no firm details on this yet).

Main scheme

The main scheme will involve a £150 ‘cost of living’ payment for Council Tax payers living in properties bands A to D, and all Council Tax payers who are in receipt of Council Tax Reduction (formerly known as Council Tax benefit), regardless of what band their property is in (A to I).

The £150 is not a rebate on the Council Tax bill, it is a payment to help with the rising cost of all utility bills.

There will be one payment per eligible household.

The main scheme will commence as soon as possible in April but we anticipate payments will be made in May.

However payments may take several months to complete. We expect the scheme in Wales to run for around 6 months.

We will make more information available once we have decided how best to implement the main and discretionary elements of the scheme.

Discretionary scheme

We have no firm details about this scheme yet. More information will follow.

Be careful!

We urge residents to be mindful of emails, texts or telephone calls from suspicious sources offering information on the scheme, as this could be from someone who is trying to steal your personal information, such as your bank account details.

Payments

Isle of Anglesey County Council has commissioned Allpay to process all payments to qualifying Council Tax payers of the main scheme.

All qualifying recipients will receive a letter through the post with a voucher barcode to present at their local Post Office, together with proof of ID, as stipulated in the letter.

Vouchers can only be cashed once and will expire one month after issue date. 

We anticipate such letters to be sent out week commencing 22 May 2022.
