War Widow’s Pensions

Types of benefit available to the widows, widowers or children of someone killed during service in the British Armed Forces, or from injuries thereafter. The Welsh Government allows local authorities to be more generous than the standard £10 disregard of War Disablement Pensions received by these claimants when calculating their income for the purposes of council tax reduction. All local authorities in Wales have chosen to be as generous as possible, disregarding 100% of these pensions.
