Lone Pensioner Allowance (LPA)
Following the 2007 Executive Review of Rating Reform, it was decided to introduce a Lone Pensioner Allowance (LPA) scheme with effect from 1 April 2008.
The LPA scheme will provide a 20% reduction on the rate bill for persons aged 70 or over who live alone.
This is beneficial to those who do not qualify for rates rebate, or who perhaps only qualify for a certain amount of rates rebate by virtue of a higher income or savings. LPA is not means-tested.
