Two Child Limit Complex Rules
The long-awaited Regulations have now been published. And the rules are pretty complex. Click here for more details.
In Housing Benefit the default rule is no extra child allowance for any additional children to the household on or after 6th April 2017 / limit to two child allowances for any new claim for Housing Benefit made on or after 6th April 2017 UNLESS the claimant's Child Tax Credit award includes a child element for that child.
