This month's competition question:

When a Universal Credit claimant's dependent child is being 'looked after' by the local authority, no Child Element is included in their UC.

However, when calculating the Housing Costs Element (number of bedrooms needed by the household) the child is included for the first 6 months of a temporary absence, as long as they were included in the claimant's Universal Credit assessment immediately prior to being looked after.

True or False?
