Social Sector Size Criteria

The Social Size Criteria, commonly known as the Bedroom Tax will affect those living in housing executive or housing association properties that are seen to be under occupying their properties by one or more bedroom.

However, under the Northern Ireland Mitigations package the Government has agreed to cover the reductions in housing benefit for those affected by this change for a number of years.
