GGGRRRR!!! So angry. I've had my notification of housing benefit through and have had the bedroom tax levied as I live in a small 2 bedroom house.
My daughter has just moved out (Hurrah!) but as I don't have a full time carer living with me I am not exempt.
I explained that my condition is variable and that from time to time someone will have to come and stay but, naturally, this does not count. It looks as though I will have to conjure up a spare £14.08 a week from my incapacity benefit to make up the shortfall.
I've asked for an application form for discretionary payments to be made, especially and there is a strong likelihood of further surgery required.
Has anyone else had this? I could do with a bit of advice.
