    Housing benefit and AA 19th May 17 at 10:29 PM
    Hi,

    Just wondering if AA makes any difference to housing benefit calculation ? There is also underlying carers entitlement.
    Play nice Just because I am paranoid doesn't mean they are not out to get me.

    The council say that they can't get disability premium as my dad has underlying entitlement to CA. Mum gets high rate AA so just trying to make sure they getting the correct amounts.

    Latest letter from council says that as they pension age they not allowed premiums for housing benefit... yet they added careers.

    They are saying that it is based on these rules

    This says the same thing. You can get the carer's premium but not the disability premium.
