Im a currently claiming contribution job seekers allowance and i received a letter saying i am no longer entitled to housing and council tax benefit it came as a shock to me as i have no reason why because my circumstances havent changed. I have been looking into it online as i wont beable to call them until monday and i read somewhere that you can only claim hb and ct benefit if i was on the income based jsa. does any1 know i only started claiming in february so i am new to all this n not really sure how it all works.

 

thanks.

No HB and CTB are based on your household income so it does not matter what benefits you are receiving (if any). You will need to contact them to find out more.

I called them this morning and they said ur hb and ctb hasnt stopped so everything seems to be fine, they said theses no need to worry as everything will get paid, not sure why that letter was sent though maybe it was a mistake

Do you receive your HB and CTB directly or does it get paid to a third party?

 

Aviva is spot on. With Income Based JSA, housing benefit and council tax benefit are automatically payable (usually) as income based benefits passport to it. With contributory based benefits, a claimant is normally required to provide other evidence of income, such as bank statements etc.

If requested, I will provide a link where possible to relevant legislation or guidance, so that advice provided can be confirmed and I do encourage others to follow those links for their own peace of mind. Sometimes my advice is not what people necesserily want to hear, but I will advise on facts as I know them - although it may not be what a person wants to hear it helps to know where you stand. Advice on the internet should never be a substitute for advice from your own legal professional with full knowledge of your individual case.

I'd make doubly sure in that case that the third party continues to receive payments, because if they do not you will have little come back from a phone conversation. I'd be tempted to request written verification that the letter you received was issued in error.
