Abstract/Citation: Amends the Income Support (General) Regulations 1987 (S.I. 1987/1967), the Jobseeker's Allowance Regulations 1996 (S.I. 1996/207), the Social Security (Adjudication) Regulations 1995 (S.I. 1995/1801) and the Social Security (Claims and Benefits) Regulations 1987 (S.I. 1987/1968). Provides that in cases where an amount in respect of mortgage interest is included in a person's or his partner's applicable amount of income support or income-based jobseeker's allowance and the person concerned ceases to receive one of those benefits but becomes entitled to the other benefit within a period of 12 weeks or, in certain cases 26 weeks, or less, that amount shall form part of his applicable amount with respect to the other benefit and shall be recalculated on the anniversary of the date on which housing costs were first met as part of the benefit to which he was first entitled. Further provision is made in respect to the recalculation of mortgage interest upon other changes of circumstances.
