Financial assitance

  • For details of the assitance benefits available, the eligibility criteria and the payments amounts see www.workandincome.govt.nz


  • Having trouble paying your rates? Some council let you defer rates payments until the property is sold. You have to pay interest on the balance and there may be some establishment costs, but it is there for those finding it hard to make ends meet. The councils known to offer a rates deferral scheme are:

                  Western Bay of Plenty District Council >>>.
                  Far North District Council >>>
                  Rodney District Council >>>

                  Thames Coromandel District Council >>>
