Know the bedroom tax…

From April 2013, in England, the ‘bedroom tax’ will introduce new rules for people claiming housing benefit for their council or housing association homes.

There will be a limit on the number of bedrooms housing benefit will help pay for. SHELTER, the housing and homeless charity have issued a graphic (below) to help explain what’s happening.
