Bedroom Tax | CPAG

These letters apply to circumstances where a claimant on legacy benefits who was part of a couple previously exempt from the Bedroom Tax, suffers a bereavement which results in their having to make a new claim for UC, and is immediately effected by the Bedroom Tax. This is often the case where the client was a carer for the person who has died.

You may also wish to check the 'Carers (following a death)' section if their Carers Allowance has run-on but the carer element has not been included in their UC.
