Hi  all, iv had a bit of advice regarding moving into a £450 per month house

I will receive a 1 bedroom rate housing benefit allowance at a rate of £90.90 a week

Iv been told that i will receive £400 of the £450 a month.

But 4x 90.90 = £360 a month not £400

Where does the other £40 come from then.

Thank you
