Reply To: PIP income


nope, we’ve not had any complaints about it ( I work at a london borough, so high rents etc) – rent is an expense like any other, DHP are not bound by the same regs/disregards as HB, so we look at the whole picture, including whether its reasonable to expect the customer to move within the award period, wheether the rent is affordable/sustainable , whether the award will need to be long term etc an whatsd reasonable expenditure.

Customers on PIP with non deps, we still expect the non deps to contribute towards the houshold bills as they woul dhave to if they were living elsewhere,
