Reply To: 53 week rent year – DHP


but she got a housing element immediately before 1 April 2024 – and will carry on getting a housing element at the end of this year – you need to not look at ir as a yearly snapshot – you need to look at it as on ongoing rent charge with UC paying in monthly installments.

She wont have a rent increase until 6 April 2025 – her UC award which includes that date wil include the new rent from the start of that assessment period. Shes likely to “win” a bit at that point.
have a look at this thread on Rightsnet
