Hi, can anybody help please, I live with my elderly father in a four bed council property and i am his carer. he gets the higher rate of disability allowance and his weekly pension, and also gets housing benefit. i claim carers allowance and income support. my girlfriend claims housing benefit for the private rented property she currently lives in, plus income support for her and the two small children. if she moved in, as the council say its ok, would my dads money or my benefits be affected and would the amount of housing benefit change altough she doesnt have to pay any rent in the property she is in at the moment, many thanks, ps, i would be grateful if there are any known links or telephone numbers . thanks again.
