Welfare reform changes

Family Premium and Allowances

In 2016 it was decided that The Family Premium of £17.40 would no longer be added to new Housing Benefit claims

If you are currently receiving this premium you will continue to do so until your circumstances change or you make a new claim. 

This change will also affect existing claimants who have a change of circumstances after that date (such as the birth of a child) as they will no longer be eligible for the premium.      

These changes apply to both the working and pension age regulations.
