Reply To: Dad paying rent for claimant


I think Peter meant Reg 42(13).

The Dad gets nothing in return for paying the claimants rent doesn’t he? So, is it not a voluntary payment, and therefore disregarded?

What’s the difference between this, and someone’s parents paying for their weekly food shopping, where that person is, for example, single and on UC? I’m just trying to think of this in practical terms really – where is the ‘value’ in taking any of the money into account. This sort of thing must go on a lot, under the radar.
