Hi,

If my partner claims maintenance loan, will this affect my housing benefit? Thanks

Hi,

If they consider it as an income then it could potentially affect it. Thanks, Ross
Hi, if my partner and I decide to not take maintenance loan, does housing benefit still calculate this when awarding benefit? I have heard they still count this as income and award the amount whether we take the maintenance or not and this is where I’m confused

Hi Tammy,

You'd be best checking with your benefit office directly for assistance with this. They'll be able to clarify that for you. Thanks, Jason
