TOPIC: New PIP claim

New PIP claim 2 months 6 days ago #169857

I'm currently on DLA middle and low rates , I've just applied for PIP , one of my questions is getting full housing benefit paid if u get middle or high care regardless iF people work or claim benefits in ur household . Before I got middle care rate I had to pay about £15 supplement for my disabled adult son a week , now I don't . Would I have to get the standard or the enhanced care rate to still qualify for full housing benefit
Thanks if u have a reply

Hi Helen,

I'm afraid we don't deal with housing benefit - but members might be able to comment from their own experience.
Nothing on this board constitutes legal advice - always consult a professional about specific problems

The standard rate of PIP daily living carries with it the same advantages as the middle rate care component of DLA. This includes no non-dependent deduction being applied to your Housing Benefit (as is also the case when the enhanced rate of daily living is in payment).
