In Circular HB A15/2013 DWP told local authorities that we were still considering the process to cap claimants who had two current Housing Benefit claims in different local authorities. DWP has undertaken detailed analysis of these claims and has identified around 500 cases that the Belfast Cap Calculation Team (BCCT) need to review to decide if the cap is appropriate. We have now completed a process design and therefore the BCCT will begin contacting local authorities to complete their review.
This circular provides further information.
