Reply To: HB award = £0.49 do you get £15.49


The claimant would have to make a new claim in these circumstances, but if the eligible rent (after taking into account the cap figure) was increased by £15, then if they had previously qualified for 25p, but were not paid, they would indeed be paid the £15.25. That is assuming of course that the LHA rent works out to be £15 more than their current eligible rent.
