Sorry, still not clear with this one.

Monthly / Daily Rent.

Regs 79(3)(a)(i) has the effective date of the uprating as being 1 April.

Reg 79(4) – if 2 or more changes occur in the same benefit week and would take effect in different benefit weeks, they “shall all take effect on the first day of the benefit week in which they occur”

So an income increase occuring, say on 28 March, come into effect from 2 April BUT as that occurs in the same benefit week as the uprating, which although in the same benefit week is effective from 1 April (different benefit week).

Seems to suggest that the uprating AND the income change both are effective from 26 March (first day of benefit week in which they occur)

Confused I am – and I have to explain it!
