Your Benfits are Changing

Charter Housing - your benefits are changing
If you claim housing benefit to help pay your rent or claim other welfare benefits, you may be affected by changes from April 2013. The changes mean that some people will get less housing benefit than they did before. We know that many of you will be worried about what this could mean for you and your family.

Changes to your benefits

We want to help you find out what’s happening and what you can do to prepare. This leaflet provides information about changes to:

  • Under-occupying your home (when you have more bedrooms than your family needs)
  • Direct payments
  • Benefit cap
  • Disability benefit
  • Council tax
