Attachment of benefit

If you are on Income Support, income based Job Seekers Allowance or Pension Credit and we feel it is appropriate, we can apply to the Department of Works and Pensions for amounts to be taken from your Income Support or Pension Credit. The current sum deducted is £3.70 per week.

This will be paid over to the council on a monthly basis until your debt is cleared. The council cannot deduct from retirement or invalidity pensions.
