    Single claimant under 35 in receipt of Long-term IB and middle rate DLC and lower rate DLM, Carer's allowance is received for her by her non-resident carer.  Claim was being paid on LHA 1-bed rate, but on the LHA anniversary in October 2012, she is now getting the 2-bed rate.  Is this correct and if so can someone explain why?

     

    Thanks

    Because somebody has made the decision that she receives overnight care at home for some or all of the week? In which case it should have been the 2 room rate from the outset
