no HB as my OH works,we pay £525 pcm at this house

had benefit check at CAB we are claiming all we can

waiting to hear if we have got DLA for baby,we have a good chance accordng to CAB as baby on meds 4times a day,inhalers 4 times a day,wetwrap and creams 4times a day

we have tried the homeless route not done the paperwork for it thou but asked what they would do if i was classed as homeless and they would have to offer me a hostel placement,TBH that is going to be alot harder as in space and also the nearest hostel what is disabled friendly is out of town

they cant offer me a 3bed as its a 4 bed we need plus room for a build of bedroom/wetroom

even if SS had to take 13boy into f/t care they still wouldnt be able to house us as it would still be a 4bed we need but as we have be told if he was in care we could move away from support network but i wont put him into care

Right,
So you have had a benefits check assuming you are paying £525 per month?
Have you had one assuming your paying the rent of £825?

Use the following website to see how much housing benefit you would be entitled to

http://www.entitledto.co.uk/

Also have you done a medical needs housing application?

And have you recieved a decesion on the medical needs application?
Also just quickly was the benefit caculation done on the basis of pre november 2009 changes that are being made?
Also the 2 bedrooms that you have got have you measured them?
If not go and do it and give me the measurements as there are other optionsBlush
