Housing benefit changes will take effect from April 2013. If the council decides you’re living in a home that’s too big for your needs, your housing benefit could be restricted. There will also be a limit on the total amount of benefits you can claim – £500 a week for single parents or couples with children, and £350 for individuals. If these changes affect you, now’s the time to look at your options and start planning.
