Coronavirus
Certain prisoners who are being released early due to the Coronavirus will not fall under the definition of 'prisoner' and therefore be able to claim means-tested benefits (or be included in a claim for means-tested benefits). Click here.
When will the claimant stop being treated as occupying their home?

The claimant is no longer treated as occupying their home if:

  • From the start of the absence it is expected that they will be away longer than six months, or
  • At any point during the 6 months the claimant changes their mind and no longer intends to return home - from the date of that decision, or
  • At any point during the 6 months it becomes apparent that the claimant is likely to be away for more than 6 months - from the date on which this becomes apparent, or
  • After they have been away for a continuous period of 6 months.
