Entitlement to Housing Benefit will be calculated at the single person rate + children, although ALL household income must be declared and will be taken into consideration.

Many thanks Casa for your response.
I have no idea whether the housing benefits were calculated for me only or for my wife and I, I will contact the housing department today and fined out.
In a worst case scenario, if it was calculated for us as a couple, can they rectify the error and I pay back the difference amount! Would this cause any issue on my wife’s renewal even though we didn’t know!
Please let me know.
Thanks
