Axe the Bedroom Tax

Find out more about the bedroom tax, the part of welfare reform that will cut the amount of benefit that people can get if they are considered to have a spare bedroom.

Welfare reforms will cut the amount of benefit that people can get if they are deemed to have a spare bedroom in their council or housing association home. This measure will apply from April 2013 to tenants of working age.

The power to do this is contained in the Welfare Reform Act 2012 and is commonly referred to as the bedroom tax, size criteria or under-occupation penalty.

What do the changes mean?

The size criteria in the social rented sector will restrict housing benefit to allow for one bedroom for each person or couple living as part of the household, with the following exceptions:

Children under 16 of same gender expected to share Children under 10 expected to share regardless of gender Disabled tenant or partner who needs non resident overnight carer will be allowed an extra bedroom

    We already know that Camoron doesn’t give a toss about the Elderly in this country but what if they have lived in their property most of their adult lives, brought up children there, made it their home – they will now be FORCED to move because they won’t be able to afford to continue living there.
    Camoron you are a PATHETIC, BULLSHITTING PLAGUE-INFESTED-RAT and a SCUMC*NT. End of story.
