If UC allows the spare bedroom, will I get higher rate housing element? Will this be backdated?
Hello. Hope somebody can help me. After getting my recent PIP award backdated several months, I have just received a notification from Universal Credit to ask whether I regularly need a spare bedroom because of disability. (To which I am answering yes, as I do have the spare bedroom). I understand that if Universal Credit allows the spare bedroom, I will get a higher rate for housing element? Will this higher rate housing element be automatically backdated as well?
