From April, over 600,000 households – including armed forces families, disabled people and foster carers – have to find £728 a year to pay a new bedroom tax. If the government deems you to have an ‘extra’ bedroom – even if it’s saved for a member of the armed forces who is serving in Afghanistan, or used by the carer of a disabled resident, or any other number of legitimate reasons – then you’ll lose 14% of housing benefit for one extra bedroom and 25% for two or more extra bedrooms. Even if there’s nowhere smaller to move to. Even if it means you can’t pay your rent.
