Reply To: UC extra bedroom – caring for sister


no – UC wouldnt award an extra bedroom – no member of your customer’s household require overnight care.

The personn requiring overnight care can have an additional bedroom if 1) they have a spare bedroom 2) receive overnight care 3) satisfy the pip/disability criteria.

but customers who have people visit them don’t qualify for an additonal bedroom for an overnight carer – because they dont need/get overnight care.

does the sister have a spare bedroom? Does she get an additional bedroom in her HB/UC calc?
