THE BEDROOM TAX – DEFEND YOUR HOME

From 1st April the bedroom tax will hit many tenants in social housing who receive Housing Benefit and have a so-called extra bedroom. Housing Association and Council tenants who have one “extra” bedroom will lose 14% Housing Benefit, around £13 - £15 per week. Those with 2 or more “extra” bedrooms will suffer a 25% cut, about £20 - £27 per week. This applies if you are under 61 years and five months.
