LHA rate for shared housing, under 35 on PIP

I just wanted to double check, I am looking to rent a room and am I right in thinking that as I'm on PIP I can get the one bedroom rate instead of the shared rate, even though I'm under 35 and will be house sharing?

Thanks :)

    Your PIP needs to include the daily living part and then you'll be entitled to the 1 bedroom rate.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
