WELFARE REFORM ACT 2012 (“BEDROOM TAX”)
The Welfare Reform Act 2012 is a major part of a massive government plan to reduce the country’s welfare bill.
Among the numerous changes that have been implemented is something which has come to be known in the media as the “bedroom tax” Other names,
such as “under occupancy charge” have been mentioned, but we’ll keep this simple and just use “bedroom tax”.
This change means that working age people living in rented council or social housing and receiving Housing Benefit now see a 14% reduction in benefit allowance if they are deemed
to have one spare room and a 25% reduction if they have two spare rooms.
Children under 16 are expected to share rooms if they are of the same gender and children under 10 are expected to share regardless.
(P)The government has said disabled people who require full time carers will be exempt, but there was confusion over this issue during the initial roll out. (Q)
The reforms have attracted widespread outcry from those affected by it (R), many local councils (S), and the Church of England (T). An e-petition to repeal the Act attracted over
15,000 signatures (U)
Thousands of law abiding people on low incomes are being forced to downsize or are being threatened with homelessness.
