This training considers the Housing Benefit rules that are particularly relevant for state pension age claimants so that accurate advice can be given.
This course will take learners through key topics such as:
- the savings/capital rules - what if someone has a house to sell,
- how absences from home affect an award and
- when a pensioner can claim HB even though they have over £16,000 in savings.
Ideal for anyone working with state pension age claimants.
