Housing benefit and council tax support during coronavirus pandemic

Increase in the additional earnings disregard

We've recalculated entitlement for households where you, or your partner, are working, and you are or would be entitled to working tax credit.

This is because the basic rate of working tax credit has increased and you could lose out in your housing benefit or council tax support. 

We’ve done this automatically and we have sent new award letters out to explain the changes.
