Reduced bills for customers on a low income

Our Low-Income Fixed Tariff (LIFT)

Our low income fixed tariff (LIFT) is available to customers who are earning less than £17,005 a year, or who are currently claiming certain benefits; such as Universal Credit or Job Seeker's Allowance.

If you’re eligible, you’ll receive a fixed-price bill each year for your clean water bill. In 2023/24, your clean water bill will be fixed at £115.10*.

If you’re eligible for LIFT and also receive a council tax reduction/support, you may be entitled to the higher rate discount, where your clean water bill will be fixed at £76.70.

To help keep your payments simple and affordable, you can also make smaller, monthly payments throughout the year.
