hey all,  

Does your rate of pip have any bearing on exclusion from bedroom tax reduction. My CAB rep told me she thinks that enhanced daily living mean i am excluded. I cant find any info to back this. Any one know if this is correct? Before i call them and they make me feel silly.

    A PIP award doesn't exclude you from the bedroom tax unfortunately. A PIP award will exclude you from the benefit cap only. If you're renting from social housing and you have a spare bedroom then the bedroom tax will apply to you. You can apply for a discretionary housing payment (DHP) for this you'll need to speak to your local council and ask them to send you a form.
    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.
