Short answer is Nope you have to pay the full lot.

In any case you should contact the council.
#3
No council tax reduction. She is likely entitled to Job Seekers Allowance...
#4
she won't be entitled to job seekers as you earn too much... my partner tried to claim job seekers when he was out of work and because I earned over 12000 a year they said he wasn't entitled to anything
#5
If she doesn't register at the job centre it will affect her OAP. They pay her NI stamp.
#6
She'll probably will be entitled to a tax rebate.
#7
If she is in full time education or one or other of you were carer for the other then you would get the discount.
#8
When my Son lived with me and was unemployed I could get a discount for him = to 25%. He was claiming JSA though.

The only people who can answer your question is your local authority.

I know a couple in a similar position . The wife is working , the husband is not . No council tax reduction and no JSA benefit .He still has to sign on as they pay his stamp.

Try the website http://www.entitledto.co.uk
Will tell you to the penny what anyone can claim
#11
You're earning £30k+?
You've got some front expecting a deduction.

I agree with what kirstie2806 said and if you would prefer a different benefits checker site try www.turn2us.org.uk All anonymous, it will take a bit of time to enter some data but it will answer many questions you may have about the whole area of benefits. It is also useful in answering questions like "what would happen if I lost my job" because you can change the answers you gave to some questions and find out the the knock-on effect of lifes little events!

You need an excuse to backdate & you have a good one (or your partner does).

Just say you were aware that you were not entitled to claim JSA but didn't know anything about missing NI credits. I did it before & they agreed but that was a good 15 years ago.

Also you havent clarified why and for how long your partner hasnt worked? Some benefits pay out for 6 months or so if someone has been in work for a period of time regardless of household income. Its called "contribution based" benefit.

Check this link & see section on contribution based JSA

Surely he is claiming some sort of benefit isn't he if his stamp is being paid?

Your partner can claim full job seekers for 6 months, Then after that your partner can only sign jobseekers for her Ni credits every 2 weeks. You will not be able to claim for council tax.
#17
Shes been out of work for 18 months. So will see what the job centre can do.

Well that's a helpful response!. Nowhere has the OP given the impression he's 'expecting' anything, he's merely asking what he's legally entitled to.

Back on topic, if the OP is married there's also the Marriage Allowance whereby someone on a low/no income can transfer £1100 of their tax allowance to their spouse, effectively reducing your tax bill by £220 per year.
