    Yeah ok are we. My council as from April next year are repleacing housing and council tex benefit.

    i have looked at their website on to see how it effects me. this is how it works out!

    Council Tax benefit now i pay £.Nil

    Council Tax benefit Next year I pay £250.00

    Housing (rent) benefit now i pay £.nil

    Housing (rent) next year I pay £500

    I don't mind paying my way, but i am not going to have a choice with this i will have to go back to making sure my mother eats (she lives with me and is 78) and go without myself, Yellow stickers here we come for me to eat.

    I wouldn't mind one bit but everything has gone up, water, gas electric etc. i can just make ends meet now god knows what i'll do as from April next year.

    HI Paul
    If it doesnt add up why dont you write down your outgoings and income and take them to CAB and ask their advice. You cant pay what you dont have and you have a right to eat and keep warm.
