Housing benefit problem with calculators?

cammz Member Posts: 8 Listener

hello, ive ran into a strange problem with the turn2us calculator and hoping someone can shed a little light on it for me please?

If i put my rent as private it doesn't give me any form of extra universal credit, but if i put it as social housing it adds basically the full rent onto it!

Is this a known problem? im confused if im actually entitled to any extra housing benefit help or not, or is it only for social housing?

Any help appreciated!
