    Housing benefit for OAP

    Housing benefit for OAP 25th Feb 12 at 6:49 PM
    Hello,

    I am looking for some advice for my mother. She is 70 years old, receives pension credit and has around 10K in savings. For the past twelve years she has been living in a house that I own and I now have to sell this property.

    She has never claimed housing benefit. Would she be entitled/eligible to claim this benefit towards private rental?

    I apologise if this subject has already been covered on this forum, I have looked but to no avail.

    Thank you in advance.

    Michael.

  • Morning. I'm on my way to @itvthismorning for my Mon slot (on at 11:45) exploring solar panels and if they're worth it.

  • On train home from Birmingham. Had dinner by the canal there this evening. Lovely area, very sunny and picturesque.
