DLC assists pensioners with rates rebate

DLC leader, Patrick Pillay, and a DLC activist assist pensioners with their rates rebate applications and renewal.

Democratic Liberal Congress leader, Patrick Pillay, said that their offices are inundated with pensioners requesting assistance with the rates rebate renewal forms and new rates rebate applications.

The DLC advises all pensioners to urgently submit their rates rebate renewal forms once they receive it in the post. If pensioners did not receive their rates renewal forms by the April 15, they are asked to contact the DLC offices for assistance.

“All our DLC activists are ready to assist pensioners so that they do not lose out on the rates rebate,” said Cllr Pillay.

He added that the rates rebate is applicable to all pensioners and disability grantees who own a house. Once a pensioner is 60-years-old, they must immediately apply for a rates rebate.

A disability grantee, who collects a disability grant and owns a house, will qualify for a rates rebate irrespective of their age.

“Pensioners and disability grantees will receive a receipt when they submit their forms. This receipt must be kept in a safe place as proof of submission. When a pensioner who has applied for rates rebate does not receive it they should contact the DLC offices with their receipt and we will make representations to the treasury department,” said Cllr Pillay.
