Cost of living payments to begin this week  

  • Tuesday, 03 May 2022

    Vale of Glamorgan



The Vale of Glamorgan Council will this week begin issuing £150 Cost of Living Support payments to more than 35,000 residents.  


Under the terms of the Welsh Government scheme, a single £150 payment is available to all households who live in properties in Council Tax bands A-D, and all those currently in receipt of support via the Council Tax Reduction Scheme.  

 

Eligible households who pay their Council Tax by direct debit will receive the payment directly into their bank account. 

 

These payments will start from Thursday 05 May. All eligible households who pay via direct debit should receive their Cost of Living Support payment by 13 May 2022. 

 

Those eligible households who do not pay their Council Tax by direct debit will receive a letter in the coming weeks with details on how they can claim their Cost of Living Support payment. 

 

There will be online, phone and in person options to ensure all eligible residents are able to claim.  

 

These arrangements have been made to enable payment of the Welsh Government funded scheme as quickly as possible. 

 

All residents can check their council tax band and whether or not they are currently in receipt of support via the Council Tax Reduction Scheme by checking their most recent Council Tax statement, issued in March 2022. 

 

All residents can also check their Council Tax band on the GOV.UK website.
