Hi

I’m working with a couple where the eldest partner has turned pension age. Luckily their HB can continue as it is the youngest member of the couple who receives ESA for them. Is it right that they are still affected by the bedroom tax now or should they get full HB?

Many thanks

The bedroom tax should not be applied any more.

See Reg A13(2)(d) of the HB Regs.
