      For some reason the council have just sent me a new bill telling me my council tax will be increasing about £35 a month for some reason  :mad:

      I work such little hours I still have to claim Universal Credit to pay my rent... plus being furloughed at the minute... I was getting more money NOT working, since getting a job all I’ve  done is struggle and it’s starting to piss me off...

      Yeah I’m gonna call on Monday, trust me to get it on a Saturday haha!

      It’s just added stress on top of already a stressful time, since I started working part time in December, I am coming off WORSE then when I was just on benefits once you include travel costs, increase in stuff such as Council Tax etc and they wonder why people don’t work... unless you’re working a full time job it’s not worth it, might aswell stay on benefits. Never struggled once while I was solely on benefits, by the end of my second month working I was eating a banana a day until my next wage... it just confuses me...

      Had to call local council on behalf of my dad as as his health has got worse and the pandemic has took hold he was finding it hard to get out and pay at the post office so I said I would set up a direct debit for him and . Kept checking to see if dd was set up and checked when first payment was due so I could transfer money into his account as we go halves. Saw it hadn't been taken as requested so called them and found out that they had received the mandate but not processed due to the shortage of.staff. I managed to get it sorted out so thankfully no warning letters were sent.

      How much council tax were you paying monthly before the £35 increase..? Seems excessive, especially if your claiming benefits..

      I was paying around £17 a month, I only work a 8 hour contract at a really quiet cinema so I’m lucky to get anything near 15 hours, and usually come out with £600 or less a month, more than likely usually close to £500, if I was on UC alone I get £560, so they top it up, £318 of that goes to rent, then bills, food, travel etc on top... so to some £50ish a month council tax to some might not sound much but it’s a massive chunk of what I have left.

      Just done some sums;

      Working;
      £318 rent
      £60 travel
      £40 gas and electric (being tight on using gas)
      £38 water
      £100 food
      £14 phone
      £25 internet
      £50 council tax

      £645 a month, can only afford this if I defo do lots of hours, very rare. If low hours, I’m fecked.

      Not working, I can take off the travel and the council tax goes down to around £13 I think when I wasn’t working at all, so that comes to... £548... which even on my lowest income, is just under my lowest payment, which I can just about live on...

      Almost £100 worse off working.
