In a nutshell, back in 2016, the Government introduced the ‘Marriage Allowance.’ It applies to both married & civil partnership couples, of which a whopping 2.4 million of them are now due a refund of £1,220* each. Couples can even receive a refund for the previous 4 years. From our own investigations here at MA&H we have discovered how easy it is to find out if this applies to you. All you have to do is use the newly created ‘FREE Marriage Allowance Check’ service.
How do I find out if I'm due a refund?
The Marriage Allowance Check is a completely free checking service! The service provider is registered with the Information Commissioners Office, registration number: ZB048800, and all data is securely protected by GDPR. From our own testing of the service we found that it takes approximately 2 minutes on average to give you your answer. It has also been awarded numerous 5 star ratings from the widely used ‘Trustpilot’ platform.
Once the check is completed and if you are eligible, you can also use the service to make your claim and get your refund.
