Reply To: Start dates


Found the reg that applies 76(2)

2) Where a claimant is otherwise entitled to housing benefit and becomes liable, for the first time, to make payments in respect of the dwelling which he occupies as his home in the benefit week in which his claim is or is treated as made, he shall be so entitled [u:77eb5b98fc][b:77eb5b98fc]from that benefit week[/b:77eb5b98fc][/u:77eb5b98fc].

This is not clear what does “from that benefit week” mean? Does it mean the Monday of that benefit week or does it mean the date that they moved in?
