    Hi can anybody help me with this.

    We have a claimant who is under 22 years old and has just left care and therefore isnt treated as a young individual for LHA. However he is living in shared accommodation and not a self contained property. As he isnt in a self contained property should he still get the shared room LHA rate or will he be entitled to the one bedroom rate regardless of the shared ammenities.


    It depends on whether he fits into paragraphs b to f in the definition of a Young Individual.

    In short, the type of care he was in matters.

    As long as he satisfies that criteria, it’s my understanding he gets the 1 bedroom rate.
