Bedroom Tax. Question

hey all,  

Does your rate of pip have any bearing on exclusion from bedroom tax reduction. My CAB rep told me she thinks that enhanced daily living mean i am excluded. I cant find any info to back this. Any one know if this is correct? Before i call them and they make me feel silly.

    A PIP award doesn't exclude you from the bedroom tax unfortunately. A PIP award will exclude you from the benefit cap only. If you're renting from social housing and you have a spare bedroom then the bedroom tax will apply to you. You can apply for a discretionary housing payment (DHP) for this you'll need to speak to your local council and ask them to send you a form.
