There is a limit on the amount of benefit that working age people aged can get. This is called a Benefit Cap.
So if you:
- Are a couple or lone parent and receive more than £384.62 per week in welfare benefits, which includes any Housing Benefit paid, or
- Are a single person and receive more than £257.69 per week in welfare benefits, which also includes any Housing Benefit paid
then you will probably be affected by these changes.
