Council tax energy rebates – payments underway to help with rising costs
Payments of the Government’s £150 energy rebate are now well underway for eligible households across Babergh and Mid Suffolk.
We are responsible for administering the Council Tax energy rebate for more than 66,000 households across our districts, as part of measures to protect residents from rising energy bills.
There is one payment per household, regardless of the number of occupants or council taxpayers named on the bill.
Payments are now well underway for those who pay their Council Tax by Direct Debit, as we already have bank details for these residents. If you have not yet received your rebate - or you do not pay by Direct Debit - we will contact you. We will send you a letter which will let you know how to claim the rebate, and the information you must provide.
If you don’t currently pay your Council Tax bill by Direct Debit, we will write to you towards the end of May early June with details of the process to be followed to receive the payment, these payments are likely to be made over late June, early July and more details will be provided over the coming weeks.
We are unable to comment on individual cases and therefore we would advise against calling regarding this process.
In the meantime, please be wary of potential scams and do not give out your personal information or bank details in response to texts, emails or phone calls.
