Social Welfare (Consolidated supplementary welfare Allowance) (amendment) (no. 2) (rent supplement) Regulations 2016




(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation.)


Article 12 of the Social Welfare (Consolidated Supplementary Welfare Allowance) Regulations 2007 sets out the manner in which the minimum weekly contribution is calculated for the purposes of the Rent Supplement scheme. These Regulations provide for a reduction in the minimum weekly contribution towards the cost of rent in the case of persons who are in receipt of Rent Supplement and who, by virtue of being aged between 18 and 25 years or between 25 and 26 years, are in receipt of reduced rate payments of Jobseeker’s Allowance, Supplementary Welfare Allowance or Back to Education Allowance.


The new minimum weekly contributions will take effect from 2 January 2017.
