Apply for Pension Credit Discount

Apply for low income pension entitlement

You're entitled to a discount of £60 on average off your water bill if you receive Pension Credit or the state pension is your only income.

We may be able to offer you a discount on your bill if:

  • we provide you with water and/or sewerage services 
  • you (and all the adults in your household) receive pension credit or the state pension is your (and their) only income.

To apply for this discount, you will need:

  • your date of birth and National Insurance number 
  • a copy of your evidence to show entitlement to pension credit or a copy of your bank statement showing state pension as your only income. Any evidence sent needs to show your name and address and be dated within the last 12 months.
