Do you wish to recover the bedroom tax you have already paid?
Please confirm your response so I can try to assist you.
The bedroom tax affects how much of your rent can be covered by housing benefit or the universal credit housing element.
The maximum rent that can be covered is reduced by:
14% for 1 spare bedroom
25% for 2 or more spare bedrooms
Example: If your rent is £100 a week, the maximum benefit you get to help with rent is:
£86 if you have 1 spare room
£75 if you have 2 spare rooms
You must pay the shortfall if the benefit you get is less than your rent.
