EAST RIDING: Taxpayers have less than two weeks to share their views on changes to the benefit system.
From April 1 next year the current council tax benefit scheme is being abolished by the Government.
Councils have been told to design their own benefit systems to replace it.
Council tax benefit is claimed by low or no income households to help them pay their council tax.

The council plans to scrap 100 per cent council tax benefits, limiting the discount for low-income households to 75 per cent.
This means every working-age household in the East Riding will have some council tax to pay.
People are still able to give their views on the changes until Friday, October 12.
Visit www.eastriding.gov.uk/counciltax support to find out more.
People can complete the questionnaire online or get a paper copy from customer service centres. Pensioners will not be affected by the changes.
